Here is a belt buckle that you very seldom encounter. This is the pattern that is illustrated as figure #985 in the O'Donnell and Campbell buckles book. It is the US model 1831 belt buckle for the Enlisted men of the Marine Corps. These came on a white buff leather belt. They note that most of them were made by the Philadelphia firm of William Pinchin from the early 1830's until 1856. Horstmann of Philadelphia also made Marine Corps pieces. It is made of a very thick brass and has the applied hooks soldered onto the reverse. On the one side it has the stud style hooks. This one is in excellent excavated condition. It was excavated and has been cleaned to the base metal and it is toning back down. This is a wonderful original Civil War enlisted Marine Corps belt buckle.
