Very Rare Dug Mexican War M1841 U.s. Navy Officer's Belt Buckle Tongue For Sale

I have owned this rare 1841 regulation U.S. Navy officer's belt buckle since the late 1960s. It had been recently dug from an old abandoned well in Stockton, California. It is the tongue portion of a two-piece tongue and wreath buckle. A perfect example of this identical buckle, non-dug, and complete with its wreath section, is on display at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy, in Washington, D.C. The diameter of the circular section is 1 3/8", is surrounded by thirteen stars, and depicts an American eagle with a shield on its breast, standing on a vertical fouled anchor. The width, including the belt loop, is 2 1/8". The brass buckle has not been cleaned. It has a deep brown patina and some spots of greenish corrosion that could probably be easily removed. There are traces of the original gold finish on the shield and anchor cross bar which do not show in my photos. There is one small, deep pit on the reverse side, and an area along the top right, where the round edge is irregular from ground corrosion. The 1/2" x 2 1/8" belt loop has a bend in the inner bar. I guarantee that this item is original and as described. Please see my other sales for more original military items from my 50+ year personal collection.PAYMENT AND SHIPPING:
