What at first appears to be a U.S. infantry belt rig is actually an assemblage of separate Civil War leather items. The belt is a nice condition buff leather belt with original brass keeper on the end. A U.S. buckle attached to the leather is an excavated specimen with label marked “MINE RUN, VA”. On this belt is a percussion cap pouch, a pistol cartridge box, and a Springfield bayonet and scabbard. The cap pouch, like the belt, is in fairly good condition. A sub-inspector’s stamp appears on the outer flap, a Newark, NJ, maker’s stamp is on the inner flap, and much of the lamb’s wool remains. Belt loops are complete and strong, closing tab remains strong, and all stitching is intact. The pistol cartridge box is complete in every way and only suffers from a moderate amount of cracking and flaking to the finish. The final piece is a .58 caliber Springfield bayonet and scabbard. The bayonet is strongly marked “US” but bears moderate to heavy surface rust. The scabbard is the two-rivet pattern. It is complete with brass tip and intact stitching along its whole length. However, the frog portion is weak and has detached from the body of the scabbard.

A collection of original Civil War pieces assembled on a belt.   [jet]
