This is a great looking belt buckle. This is the style of belt buckle used for the illustration of Plate 295 on page 162 of the 1st Edition of Confederate Belt Buckle Book by Steve Mullinax. This pattern is left out of the 2nd , revised edition of the book. It is made of a sheet of die-stamped brass with the star in the center. The keeper hook of the buckle is attached by riveting the hook onto the main body of the plate. This one also has the original brass keeper from the other end of the belt still remaining as well. In the buckle book, Mullinax mentions that this plate was "attributed to the Waco Guards of Texas. He also states that some experts believe them to be post-Civil War because of the way the hook is riveted in place. That uncertainty of production is why this buckle is $4,250 instead of $10,000+. This buckle came from the award winning collection of Don Phillips. His Confederate Belt Buckle display won numerous awards at the biggest Civil War shows across the country. He had acquired the buckle a few years ago from Old South Military Antiques owned by Shannon Pritchard. It is accompanied by his letter of authenticity. In the letter he states that Steve Mullinax based the Waco attribution on the fact he saw a photograph of a member of the Waco Guards wearing one of these distinctive plates. He also adds that the plate came out of Hopkinsville, Kentucky and his research showed that the Waco Guards were assigned to the 7th Texas cavalry and were in Hopkinsville, Kentucky on November 10th 1861. This is your chance to own a buckle from his collection.
