Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very rare piece. It is the excavated wreath portion of a 2 piece Engineer belt buckle. These were the model 1832 Engineer 2-piece buckle that has the castle and eagle design tongue (missing). This one is a variation of the ones pictured on pages 152 and 153 of the belt buckle book by Campbell and O'Donnell. At a recent show O'Donnell looked at this one and said that that is what it was for. The wreath measures 88 mm by 56mm on the belt loop and the wreath is 53mm high. The inside of the wreath measures 41.5mm by 62mm with the opening being 62mm by 18mm. The verbal history that accompanied the wreath is that it was found in the Charleston, South Carolina area and it has the greenish maroon, almost black patina that comes from that area. This is an extremely scarce wreath and we will sell you the wreath or buy your tongue if it fits.
