Original Dug Ca. 1850s Militia 2 Pc. Tongue & Wreath Eagle Belt Buckle For Sale

Original Dug Ca. 1850s Militia 2 Pc. Tongue & Wreath Eagle Belt Buckle

These two-piece tongue and wreath militia belt buckles were used from the 1850s into the Civil War period. They were apparently used by both Northern and Southern militias, and have been found on many Civil War battlefields. They are rarely recovered complete with both pieces, and in undamaged condition. I purchased this one in the 1960s from the man who found it using a metal detector. It was dug from behind the site of a hotel and bar on the main street of Timbuctoo, an 1850s gold rush town on the Yuba River in Northern California. Interestingly, it was found near a sheriff's badge. The buckle is made of die stamped sheet brass. It has no signs of corrosion damage from being in the ground, The American eagle and shield have some loss of detail on the highlights that appears to be from wear. The finely lined background of the circular section is still crisp and clear, as are the details of the eagle's tail feathers, branches and arrows and outer areas of the wings. There is a coppery, medium dark patina. I have not cleaned the buckle, and the reverse has dirt and greenish tarnish remaining. There are no bends, cracks or other defects. I doubt that you will find a better dug example of this buckle. I guarantee that it is original and as described.
