|CIVIL WAR LEATHER BELT & OVAL REPLICA BUCKLES
The Oval is the most common Civil War belt buckle on the market, and indeed was the most common buckle on the battlefield during the Civil War. In the North, the Union had the industrial resources and was able to die-stamp as many as a million of these buckles. Both US and CS Oval Belt Buckles are embossed in solid brass on the oval face, and lead filled like the originals including 3 clasp prongs on the back. Each buckle measures 3-1/2" across and 2-3/16" high and about 1/4" thick, weighing approximately 8.2 ounces each.
A sturdy belt is required in order to support your pistols, cartridge box, cap box, and saber if you wear one. The thick black leather construction of our 16-08 Belt measures 1.75" wide by 44" in overall length. Holes are pre-punched yet the length should be cut to your own personal measurements. Use our 16-08 Belt with our "US" or "CS" solid brass buckle replicas only.
A great accessory to top off your authentic Civil War outfit. Ideal for re-enactments, weddings, LARPing, costumes for film and theatre.
