Buff leather sword belt in solid condition. The exterior leather surfaces are very clean. The leather is strong and supple with no weak spots. The shoulder support strap (Sam Brown belt) is present but has mottled color on its surface. Both of the original sword traces (hangers) are present. All hardware is present as well, including snap-swivel hooks on the hangers. The white interior surface of the leather shows surface dirt from age and use.

The belt plate is the Pattern 1851 NCO plate with applied German silver wreath. The keeper and plate have matching numbers, “405”.

The accompanying pistol cartridge box has strong leather and tight seams. Outer flap shows minor cracking and a little loss of finish at the top. There is a script “US” on the flap and a well-worn maker’s stamp. Latch tab is complete and unbroken. The interior of the box is good. The back has both belt loops with minor surface loss on one.  Belt loops are stitched and riveted. Brass finial is present on bottom.

This item is a terrific example of a Civil War cavalry sword-belt rig.  [jet]
