CSA PLATE ON ORIGINAL BELT W/HOLSTER

PRICE   $  6,695.00

DESCRIPTION

An Atlanta style "CSA" belt plate on the original belt with the associated Confederate holster. The buckle has a superb deep reddish brass patina with evident file marks and definite signs of field use. The belt is of heavy bridle leather with thick verdigris around buckle hooks. The holster is an obvious Confederate arsenal rework of a civilian pattern 31 caliber holster. The latch tab is a rather crude sewn strip of brown leather with hole cut for closure over the lead, the holster flap having been cut to accept the latch tab. The lead closure finial has lead washer on reverse and has been reinforce with a piece of brown leather sewn to outside of holster. The belt loop is of the same brown leather that is attached with two crude brass rivets.

The pair have been together since wartime and one would think used by and artilleryman or an infantry soldier who wanted the extra firepower of a handgun.

The buckle is similar to plate 087 in "CONFEDERATE BUCKLES AND PLATES" by Mullinax.

 

CONDITION

    A nice Confederate accoutrement set with buckle and belt having every indication of having been together since the war with undisturbed patina and verdigris. Holster is a Confederate rework of a civilian or captured piece showing wear commensurate with the set.
