1851 Eagle Plate on a Belt with Cap Pouch
This belt started out as a sword belt. The sword rings and leather fasteners have been removed. The stitching holes and rivet holes are visible. The stitching and rivets for the keeper are present and solid. The belt is marked GAYLORD. The belt buckle is nice with a one piece silver wreath. The leather is nice and strong. The cap pouch is the late war pattern without an inner flap. The ears are sewn on the outer flap. There is a nice ordinance stamp on the flap. There is a maker's name stamped on the back of the cap pouch, but the belt hides most of it. I can see a H on the top line and a PHIL on the second. The cap pouch is sound with nice condition leather. Both belt loops are solid and strong.
