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, with its even brown patina, is actually smoother than the high resolution images indicate. 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 soldiers waist. The rear has all three belt attachment hooks and the solder is smooth and complete with the exception of a couple of areas at the rim. The plate has a slight body curve and there are no cracks, bends, or repairs.
Comments: The portion of the remaining leather belt make this belt plate displayable from either side. This plate will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
Recovered: Fort Fisher, NC
Approximate size: 55 x 87 mm.
