This is a very tough to find belt and buckle. It is the pattern that is listed as figure #1015 in the wonderful buckle book by O’Donnell & Campbell. This is the belt buckle that was worn by the enlisted men of the United States Navy during the Civil War. The buckle itself is a cast iron piece that was painted using black lacquer paint to keep them from rusting in the salt air. It has an iron piece of metal folded over the center bar that was riveted on one end to the belt itself. The other side has a ribbed texture that was designed to pinch the belt against the edge of the buckle to keep it up. One thing that is so special about this one is that it has the original leather belt attached. This is a nice little touch to an already great artifact. The leather is the buff leather version and the leather is still nice and pliable. There is a splice where the sailor had to keep using the belt. He added the end and you can see that it was used after the repair. It is a great necessity repair. What a great Civil War Naval Item!
