    Civil War Period "Virginia in Wreath" Rectangular Sword Belt Plate on the Original Belt. Although some of these plates are known to be post war, those with serial numbers, such as this example, are definitely of the period and been excavated from Civil war battlefields. 50mm x 84mm, of cast brass with medium width tongue. "Virginia" displayed in a panoply inside a laurel wreath on a stippled background. The plate and keeper bear the matching #811. The original leather belt remains intact and shows moderate crackling to the finish but sound, retaining only remnants of the original sword hangers. A very nice example of this striking Civil War period Virginia belt plate on the original belt.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
