An Unissued US Oval Belt Buckle with Unissued Buff Belt - SOLD

An Unissued US Oval Belt Buckle with Unissued Buff Belt

This model 1839 US oval buckle and 1861 pattern buff belt with standing brass keeper are unissued survivors of the Civil War. After the war they were sold as surplus.

The belt is by S. H. Young of Newark, NJ and was inspected by White. The Young makers' stamp is relatively clear. There is just a small amount of the inspector's stamp present. Unlike bridle leather with a smooth surface buff leather is difficult to make a good impression of any stamp.

The belt is 1 7/8" wide and 39" long.
