This is a beautiful excavated Civil War eagle sword belt buckle. This is the style that was worn on the sword belt of many Civil War soldiers. It has the beautiful spread wing pattern eagle in the center of the buckle. On the background of the buckle it has the stippled style design. The eagle has the ribbon coming from her beak that reads the motto " E PLURIBUS UNUM”. This is the pattern that would, at one time, have had the three piece applied silver wreath around the eagle and this one is missing in action as is so often the case with these in excavated condition. On the back of the buckle it has the original keeper hook intact. It has had an original, but not original to this buckle, keeper added for display purposes. The keeper is a little too big but is better than nothing. The verbal history that accompanied this piece is that it was found on private property near the Battle of Resaca in Georgia. This is one of the battles where the Confederates were trying to prevent Sherman from getting into Atlanta. This is a fine looking excavated Civil War eagle sword belt buckle for your collection.
