Original U.S. Civil War Leather Federal Percussion Cap Box Pouch by R. Nece

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Civil War Federal Issue Enlisted Man’s Waist Belt with Model 1839 Belt Buckle. The Belt is in excellent condition considering it’s age, showing obvious signs of honest wear, and age from decades in storage. The belt is constructed of two-inch-wide bridle leather, and is fitted with a circa 1863 brass belt keeper, which was an improvement over the earlier model M-1855 Waist belt which had an integrally-sewn loop (which resulted in Belt Buckles being lost, as the soldier had to remove the buckle in order to use the keeper). There are maker’s and sub-inspector’s stamps near the brass keeper, which are strong and legible. The belt measures 39 inches in overall length.

The belt plate is the Model 1839 oval “US” and has “arrow” hooks, tongue and 100% of the lead fill on the back. The face has a nice clean original finish with a pleasing mellowed patina on the raised areas.

An excellent example of a Union Civil War Soldier’s Waist Belt, as standard issue to soldier’s during the American Civil War!
