CSBP 1. Confederate Enlisted Man’s Belt Plate.
Superb non excavated “Atlanta Arsenal” CSA Belt Plate in flawless condition. Deep bronze patina.
CSBP 2. Confederate Officer’s Sword Belt.
Here is a Confederate Officer’s belt rig that is more scarce than most collectors realize. This distinct type is shown on page 20 in Mullinax’s Confederate Belt Buckle Book. He gives it a rarity of 9. This particular belt was originally purchased from Steve Mullinax’s personal collection and is simply superb. Note the casting flaws throughout. This style is only associated with the Army of Northern Virginia and was probably manufactured in Richmond. I have every reason to believe that the belt is original to the buckle. I see common Richmond Arsenal Belt Rigs sell for much more than I am asking for this fine rarity.
CSBP 3. Dug Confederate Enlistedman’s Belt Plate.
If you are looking for the daddy of the Leech and Rigdon CS Oval with 11 Stars Belt Plates, then here you are. This plate’s authenticity is beyond dispute being published on the cover of Steve Mullinax’s Confederate Buckle book and also on the cover of the North-South Trader Civil War Magazine. It is in excellent condition with all three attachment hooks intact and a minor digger’s “kiss” on the face. The patina is an untouched woods green with no ground action. Dug at Huntsville, Alabama according to verbal provenance. Layaway is available. Price reduced!

Very nice and untouched Large size “Wisbone” Frame buckle that was dug at Varina, VA. near Richmond.
CSBP 5. Excavated Confederate Enlisted Man’s Belt Buckle.
One of the rarest of the Frame Buckle styles. This type is made of thick cast brass with wide teeth. I dug one just like it in Tullahoma, TN. This fine Confederate Buckle is perfect and was dug by Chris Trimble on the Williamsburg, VA. Battlefield.
CSBP 6. Confederate Carbine Sling Buckle.
A local digger brought this one into the shop. He has been hunting a Confederate Cavalry Camp near Whittle Springs and he dug this along with several Confederate bullets. This type is extremely thick and heavy. Totally untouched, just as it came out of the ground.

Just like it came out of the ground.
