This is an extremely fine original American Civil War U. Oval Belt Buckle that is in excellent, ground recovered condition. The brass face is with a beautiful, smooth, even chocolate brown ground-dug patina, the brass exhibiting a few minor dings from actual use in the field. The reverse is with a perfect set of'puppy paw' hooks and a thick, tapered belt hook. It retains 100% of the lead filling and traces of the earth from which it was excavated.
There are no digger's contact marks on the plate and it remains just a jewel of an example. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\Civil War (1861-65)\Original Period Items\Belts & Belt Buckles". The seller is "thedogfacesoldier" and is located in this country: US.
