Civil War Union officers Leather Belt and tongue and wreath buckle. the buckle is gold plated over brass, there is a worn place on the back of the buckle, where the brass shows through. the buckle has a wreath around the outside of an American eagle with its head turned toward the right, sitting on an anchor, with a rope through the handle around the eagle, there are thirteen stars around the eagle and the anchor, with three of what looks like cannon balls underneath the eagle, which is gold plated. The belt is fine black leather, and underneath the buckle is a piece of leather with the name W. J. Lippincott engraved in the leather, you probably can't see it on the picture, but I put a picture of it anyway. I don't know what rank Lippincott was, but this is an officer quality belt. In near mint condition the belt measures 2 inches wide, and 41 inches long. He was probably in the US Navy, due to the anchor the eagle is sitting on. This came from a trader, that I have known for many years, He picked it up in Roswell, New Mexico several years ago, no knowledge of how it got there.  Thanks for shopping in the Land of Enchantment! REDUCED!
