Union Buckles and Plates

Model 1839 "Baby" U.S. Buckle

Non Excavated model 1839 U.S. Buckle commonly calld the "Baby" U.S. buckle.  This speciman is in very good condition.  The arrow hook on the back has been shaved down and it can be clearly seen where that was done.  Given the even patina across the reverse of the plate the alteration was done 150+ years ago.  It would be hard to upgrade from this one.

Price: $425

Non-Dug U.S. Oval Buckle

This is a nice condition non-dug lead filled U.S. oval belt buckle.  Given the finish on the face of this one, someone many years ago tried to shine it up with Brasso.  The face is beginning to patina back out but that doesn't detract from this beauty.  It is of the arrow hook variety and displays nicely.

Price: $245

Dug U.S. Oval Belt Buckle

Dug lead filled U.S. belt plate of the arrow hook variety.  Greenish brown patina.

Non-dug / early battlefield pick up U.S. Oval Buckle

This particular buckle looks like an early battlefield pick up.  If it was an early pick up there is no known recovery location.  It has the appearance of being out in the elements for a period of time but not in the ground.  This one has the arrow hook attachments and there is one small area of rust on the reverse.  A good solid common plate of the Civil War.
