Item: Excavated Confederate "Virginia Style" Tongue and Wreath Belt Buckle
Construction: Sand cast brass with raised letters "CS".
Condition: Fair, excavated. The tongue and wreath have an overall matching chocolate brown patina. The belt attachment keepers are sheared from both portions. Neither the tongue or the wreath have any cracks or repairs. In the rear of the tongue is the Roman numeral benchmark "III". Also, in very light old printed lettering on the rear is "FOUND KELLY'S FORD TOGETHER".
Recovered: Kelly's Ford, VA
Approximate size: 64 X 48 mm.
Comments: A similar example of this style plate is found in Steve Mullinax's book "Confederate Belt Buckles and Plates", 1st edition, on page 12 as plate 009 and also in the "Expanded Edition" of the same book on page 14, plate 009. Note that the plate in the book also has the Roman numeral benchmark "III". I have included an image of the plate and its description from the book in the additional images in this listing. This Confederate belt buckle will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
