Very Nice Original Non-Excavated Civil War U.S. Belt Plate (Buckle) Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. A stamped brass lead filled mid-war (1863) model U.S. belt buckle with “arrow” hooks. This plate has a nice medium patina and has not been cleaned, looks fantastic! This plate looks to be combat worn and not a surplus left over (see photos). This plate would have most likely came home with a a solider and it is NOT excavated from a battle (NOT dug from the ground). 100% authentic. All three hooks are present and it looks great, in excellent used condition. US buckles this nice are very difficult to find and only come from old collections. 100% guaranteed to be authentic Gettysburg Museum certified, museum COA provided.
