VIRGINIA STYLE CSA ENLISTED WAIST BELT

 

$ 4,795.00

DESCRIPTION

A Confederate issued enlisted waist belt with the thinner pattern "Virginia" style CSA rectangle belt plate. Buckle is sand cast brass with cast hooks. There is a casting flaw in the form of a small hole in the brass just above the "A".  Heavy file marks are evident on edges, letters and raised area next to "A" which was caused by bending the hooks over. Black finished belt is definitely military issue with single impressed line along both edges and rough unfinished interior side. It strongly appears to be original to the buckle as there is a noticeable shadow under the buckle and there is no evidence of another buckle ever having been in the holes cut for attachment.

The waist belt was part of the Steve Mullinax estate and would have been one of his keepers. I can see why as this is truly a top shelf example.

CONDITION

 An excellent example of the CSA rectangle on original belt. Buckle has reddish color due to high copper content. All three hooks are intact. Belt is strong and supple with only minor loss and craquelure to finish.
