Item: Excavated US oval waist belt buckle with partial belt leather.
Construction: Stamped thin sheet brass with raised letters "US". Rear with solder fill and arrow type attachment hooks.
Condition: Excellent, excavated. Its brass front has an even dusty chocolate-brown patina that is basically flawless. The rear includes a chunk of its original leather belt which is solidly secured by the two arrow hooks as it likely was when it was wrapped around some soldier's waist. The rear has all three belt attachment hooks and its solder is present with overall moderate surface pitting which is now stable. The plate has a slight body curve and there are no cracks, breaks, bends, or repairs.
Comments: The face of this belt plate has "the look" that I really like. That, combined with the leather belt portion, make it a great dug relic displayable from either side. It will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
Recovered: Petersburg, VA
Approximate size: 54 x 86 mm.
