Original Dug 1850s-60 Militia Eagle Belt Buckle Tongue:
$304


Two-piece tongue and wreath eagle belt buckles were used by both Northern and Southern State Militias from the 1850s into the Civil War period. They have been found on many Civil War battlefields. I purchased this buckle tongue in the early 1960s from the man who found it using a metal detector. It was found at the site of an 1850s California gold rush town named Pokerville (now Plymouth), in Amador County. It is made of heavy cast brass or bronze. It measures 2 1/4 inches wide. The diameter of the circular section is 1 1/4 inches, and the rectangular belt loop is 1/2" x 2". The eagle with shield is on a finely lined background, surrounded by 27 stars. The eagle is an unusual design, with stubby wings and an up-pointed beak. It has a pleasing, even, dark brown patina. It is in excellent condition for having been dug, with no ground deterioration, and with all details clearly visible. I guarantee that it is original and as described.
