Civil War Union M1855/61 oval US belt plate on original leather with keeper, well used



100% authentic and original standard Civil War Union infantry oval US buckle with arrowhead hooks on the original well-worn standard issue leather belt.  This old veteran surfaced at an auction in Illinois and was once part of a local history museum display.  It has a few professional repairs as you can see, but clearly was field worn and has a wonderful age patina.  The solder filled brass buckle is near fine and the original brass keeper is still on the belt.
