    Possibly the only example extant.

    Unique U.S. Pattern 1852 Naval Officer's Sword Belt with all Furniture, Made and Marked by Gorham in 14 Karat Gold, Circa 1880. The belt plate, and all fittings, including snap swivels etc. bear the Gorham mark and 14K. The belt itself is of maroon Moroccan leather, covered in dark blue silk with stripes of gold bullion thread. Sword hangers also of blue silk with the snap swivels on leather tabs. Belt shows clear signs of wear and use but excellent, all fittings perfect. A great rarity in American military equipment.
