DUG MODEL 1855 RIFLEMAN’S BUCKLE

$45.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1054-1674

Three-quarters of an excavated rifleman’s buckle.  The model 1855 rifleman’s buckle consisted of a two-piece brass buckle and two brass belt slides. Included here is one half of the buckle and the two slides. These slides have holes on the top which allow the regulation infantry knapsack to hook into.  This feature helped support the knapsack up on the shoulders.

These pieces are complete and unbroken.  All have matching brown patina. There is an old and faded cloth tape label that looks to be marked “Spotsylvania” with an indiscernible date.    [jet]
