On offer is a pre-war militia and emergency issue Confederate brass waist belt plate. The buckles are constructed with exacting detail, material, workmanship and weight. No attribute is left unattended from edge dressing with a large mill file to the hammered turns in the iron wire hooks.
The plates show the same shadowing of the flux and large flow pattern of the solder as found in the originals. In 50 years these buckles will be found being sold as originals with no questions asked.
