**rare** Authentic Civil War Model 1851 Officer's Belt Rig & Eagle Buckle. Frog:
You are offerding on an AUTHENTIC CIVIL WAR MODEL 1851 OFFICER'S BELT RIG FROG & EAGLE BUCKLE. I have worked on purchasing this wonderful rig for years from a local CIVIL WAR COLLECTOR. He was going to give it to a local museum but my pestering won out! This is the best rig I have had the pleasure of seeing. It is in awesome condition with no repairs! The buckle has a superb original patina as do the rest of the clips and hardware. The leather is still fairly supple but does show some age checking. The stitching is still in good shape. I would guess the belt was well cared for and maintained for many years. I know I have tried to purchase it for at least 15 years! A wonderful CIVIL WAR RIG worthy of any collection.
