Acquired from a Philadelphia estate sale, this is a rare Pennsylvania oval belt plate from the Pennsylvania Reserve Brigade. This plate depicts the state seal of Pennsylvania, two horses over a coat of arms with symbolism of agriculture and commerce, and "RB" for Philadelphia Reserve Brigade. This brigade served with the 119th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. This was an elite unit from Philadelphia and served on the battlefield as well as home guard duties. This plate is believed to have been manufactured during the war, and was probably contracted with a local Philadelphia maker who produced limited quantities. This plate is oval following the Federal Regulation of 1839. Face is stamped out of thin sheet brass, lead filled, and configured with brass belt hooks.

Accompanying bridle leather belt is in good condition. Leather remains soft and pliable with majority of the surface finish gone. Has early brass belt keeper attached.

Extremely rare belt and buckle is very good condition.   [jet]
