Item: US Belt Buckle
Construction: Stamped thin sheet brass with raised letters "US". Rear with solder fill and arrow type attachment hooks (now missing).
Condition: Good, excavated (see Comments below). Its brass front, which has a brown patina, is mostly unblemished. The rear solder is complete however the belt attachment hooks are no longer present. The plate has no cracks, bends, or repairs.
Recovered: Petersburg, VA area.
Approximate size: 53 x 86 mm.
Comments: This buckle may have been an early field pick-up given its near non-excavated condition. All three belt attachment hooks appear to have been intentionally removed, possibly for display purposes at some point. An example of this slightly smaller size buckle can be found in "American Military Belt Plates" by Michael J. O'Donnell and J. Duncan Campbell, on page 314, as plate 507. This belt plate will not only be an excellent buckle for display but also an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War buckle, plate, or general relic collection.
