    Description

    VIRGINIA STYLE TWO PIECE INTERLOCKING CS BELT PLATE ON THE ORIGINAL ARTILLERY STYLE SWORD BELT. Cast brass, 86mm X 48 mm with excellent fit and finish. Tongue with seraphed CS, wreath composed of laurel leaves and berries with crossed ribands at top and bottom. The Richmond Arsenal artillery style brown patent leather belt retains the original brass adjusting buckle, leather adjustment loop and large brass circular ring for suspension of the sword. Completely untouched and absolutely authentic in every respect. Includes a letter of authenticity from Steve Mullinax. A scarce and very desirable Confederate belt set.

    Condition:
    All stitching tight and sound. Slight crazing to the leather finish, no flaking. Some honest wear to the edges of the large leather circular pad behind the sword suspension loop. All brass with very nice untouched patina. The plate has left a perfect impression on the leather backing tab. Overall the belt is very sound and supple and completely untouched.

    Provenance:
    The Tharpe Collection of American Military History

    Exhibited:
    The Liberty Heritage Society Museum
