  1. It is cloth of some kind. I'm no expert but even I knew the belt worn with the buckle during the war would have been leather. Some have suggested that this red cloth would have been worn as more of a ceremonial belt on a veterans' or GAR uniform later on after the war. I haven't had time to look into that yet.
  2. Thank you for that detailed info! I'm thankful to learn more about this, and am having fun imagining where all it has been and what all it has seen.

  4. Thanks! I'm not sure how to tell where it was moved to - could you point me?
  5. Thank for this Terry! Judging by the location of the stars, wreath pattern, and some other research, I believe this is the exact one I have - which is interesting because our common ancestor was in an Ohio cavalry regiment as I recall. http://www.relicman.com/plates/zLibraryPlate.223.Fed.Sword.Pattern623.htm

  7. Greetings! I guess I've been a collector of mainly WWII-era items ever since I found a clip for a K98 Mauser still loaded with four rifle rounds stamped with the Nazi Eagle and 1943 at a flea market as a kid. I got more into it when I married my wife - her grandfather was in the 7th Armored Division and once he learned of my interest, he started telling me a lot. I have a few of his items - his bayonet, compass, and duffel bag. I also have the flag from his casket. I've picked up other items along the way, but the stuff I treasure most has some connection to someone I know. A rath
  8. Thanks for the advice. Since I just arrived I didn't want to get "out of bounds" so I appreciate the direction!
