    Most Rare Confederate Officer's Two-Piece Interlocking "CS in Shield" Waist Belt Plate. 51mm x 75mm, with fewer than six examples known, this example utilizes a beautifully made replacement wreath, cast specifically for this tongue, and nearly impossible to detect. Although the exact point of origin of these plates remains a mystery, they are generally accepted as being of English manufacture, possibly by S. Buckley of Birmingham, and run through the blockade, obviously in very limited numbers. Excellent condition and the only example of this plate that has appeared on the market in recent years. Without question, generically among the rarest of all Confederate officers' waist belt plates.
