    Pre-War, About Mint, Brown Buff Infantry Waist Belt with Single Leather Loop, Oval US Buckle and Cap Box. The plate is most unusual with a distinctive egg shape with short leaded arrow kooks. The lead filler is very shallow and there is a 3/8" X 1¼" metal strip inserted in the lead, with three rivets holding the hook assembly in place. Possibly a period repair but appears to have been fabricated that way. Cap box mint with maker's mark of "H. W. Oliver/Pittsburgh, Pa." on the inside flap. Unusual square tool marks with X in the center. Box with wool and an original unissued leather thong for attaching the circular eagle breast plate to the sling. Very nice set with possibly unique plate.
