$895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-4812

This is an officer’s sword belt rig in good condition. Belt is constructed of folded leather that is stitched. Tooled edge on belt. Belt leather measures approximately 36” long overall x 1.7” wide. Leather is smooth and supple with moderate surface crazing overall and light wear on edges. Leather “uniform protector” (which goes behind buckle when worn) remains complete and in very good shape. Two sliding belt loops remain on belt.

Pattern 1851 buckle features high relief details on front and 0.5” wide tongue on back. Matching bench mark numbers (742) on buckle and keeper. Two leather sword hangers are present. Front (short) hanger with “J” hook is sewn to the belt and remains strong. Longer strap is attached on a brass “slider” and has one “fold” weak spot. Brass snap hooks, J-hook, and “buttons” are all in place. Stitching remains tight and strong.  No “Sam Brown” shoulder strap.

Overall, a very good and complete officer’s sword belt that would look good on a uniform display.   [jet] [ph:L]
