I do not remember where I picked this treasure up, only that it has been in my posession for over 20 years. In all that time and many inquiries throughout the years, nobody has been able to tell me where this came from, only possibilities. One recent possibilitiy is the it was givin to retired high ranking officers of the US calvery after the civil war. This derived only from the marking on the back of the eagle and shield with a star and stripes on the shield and wheat sheafs in eagles claw.
This buckle in very heavy, measures about 5 inches long and 3 wide.
