Original Civil War Belt Buckle, Buff Belt, And Post State Buttons. A fascinating Relic consisting of an authentic Civil War U.S. belt buckle on a pre-Civil War buff belt with maker stamp. The buff belt is adorned with post Civil War various state seal buttons. This was most likely a Civil War Veteran’s parade item or possibly a veteran’s souvenir. It has the same type idea as a WWI “Hate Belt” if you have ever seen one of those. A solid authentic U.S. plate the hooks are slightly altered (see photo) . Gettysburg Museum certified, museum COA provided.
