Old South Military Antiques

Super Rare CS Belt Plate
Item #: OS-6993

This is one of the very rarest of the CS belt plates. In 1974 when Syd Kerksis’ Plates and Buckles of the American Military was published; none were known to exist. By the time Steve Mullinax’s Confederate Belt Buckles and Plates was published in 1991 three had been recovered. Two had been excavated at Gettysburg and one at Bermuda Hundred, Virginia. This may make a fourth example or it may be one of the three mentioned by Mr. Mullinax. Unfortunately, the recovery history of this example has been lost (how the heck does that happen?)

This example is in very good to excellent excavated condition; it would be perfect but for the bend shown in the pictures.
