What a beauty! This is your opportunity to own a very scarce buckle in beautiful non-excavated condition and even on the original belt. This is a variation of the buckle that is illustrated as plate 242 on page 161 of the belt buckle and plate book by O'Donnell and Campbell. These are officially known as the 1834 pattern United States rifleman's enlisted buckle. They state that these were used from approximately 1832 until 1839. The buckles are constructed of a piece of stamped brass for the face with slightly beveled edges. On the reverse of the plate it has the applied belt loop bar with the original "teeth" and applied keeper hook. The buckle itself is in gorgeous non-excavated condition with a beautiful patina all over. As if that wasn't enough this one is accompanied by the original tarred black leather belt. The belt is an exceptional condition and even has the original sewn leather strap for adjusting the length of the belt. One thing that makes this piece extra special is that it has the original cleaning pic and brush attached to the belt. These were used for working on the rifleman's flintlock musket. These pick and brush combinations can being $250 these days by their selves. This is a gorgeous piece of history an exceptional condition.
