This is a fine looking non-excavated belt buckle on an original belt. This is the classic style that was worn by the regular fighting men of the Civil War. It has a vividly clear "US" on the face of the buckle. This is the version that has the arrow style hooks on the back and they are still present. This one is in very nice shape all the way around. It has all three of the original hooks intact on the reverse of the plate along with superb lead. When you look at the belt you can tell that it was used extensively. It is still nice and pliable and full-length. What makes it extra special is that the back of the leather has the scarce maker's mark of the firm of Longley & Company of Lewiston, Maine as well as the 1862 production date of the cartridge box. It isn't often that you see one of these. This is a good looking non-excavated U.S. soldier’s belt buckle on original leather belt and it has the date and maker marking.
