CS TONGUE PORTION OF A TWO-PIECE CS BELT PLATE

$650.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1126-07A

This is a good, original tongue portion of the interlocking “two-piece CS” belt buckle. Derived from the US 1839 enlisted “artillery plate,” and the 1832 officer’s plate, these are most often associated with sword belts. They were worn by officers and cavalry enlisted men, with the quality of the plate and the belt usually distinguishing the two with unidentified examples. This one likely falls in the enlisted category, with a well-defined “CS,” but rather rough, unfinished sand-cast surface to front and back, but speed was of the essence in southern production and function usually outweighed appearance.

This is a solid plate, classic Confederate, with no bends or repairs, and one you can sleep at night owning. [SR][PH:L]
