    Civil War Confederate Two-Piece Waist Belt Buckle From Antietam, Made Into a Brooch. Gilded brass two-piece waist belt buckle in excellent condition, the reverse with added pin / catch. The family provenance letter that accompanies it states it was removed from a dead Confederate soldier at Antietam by Dr. Samuel Shaw Stewart, Assistant Surgeon of the 123rd PA Volunteers. The letter further states that the brooch addition was added in commemoration of the Centennial of the Civil War and that the buckle had never left the family.

Accompanying the lot is a copy photo of Dr. Shaw, a file of family genealogy, and a letter of authenticity from noted authority Steve Mullinax.
