Opinions on Civil war cartridge belt

Recommended Posts

I picked this up the other day. I know it’s old but is this from the civil war like I was told ? Any and all comments are welcome.

Im thinking made after the CW.... I have a belt that's similar but with a steel buckle open face buckle. Thinking some one adapted the buckle to the belt

I'm thinking post civil war as well. Possible 1880-90 time period and while the belt plate and keeper are military I am thinking the belt was made up for civilian wear or at least state militia.

Seeking Model 1895 and 1902 Named Officer coats as well as Spanish American War Tropical Uniforms.
Also pre WW2 marine uniforms. Always pre-1945 Colorado National Guard Items wanted! Also seeking Rhodesian

Uniforms and Gear used by Americans in the Rhodesian Security Forces during the Bush War (Africa).

Do you have a photo of yours posted somewhere? I have been looking for something similar - cowboy-esqe with cartridge loops and open buckle?

 


Looking for items related to the 161st Infantry Regiment
