A Very Rare Original Civil War Union Army Staff Officer’s Silk and Leather Belt and Cartridge Box. This is a very rare surviving silk, brass, and leather Civil War staff officer's belt and cartridge box.

In remarkably good condition, this belt retains the Lion's Head device with Chains that are connected to the heavy Federal Shield embossed with the American Eagle; both are made of heavy gilt brass.

The belt is leather covered with a silk fabric. It has a large brass Buckle and brass Buckler Tip. Very attractive.

The heavy patent leather cartridge box is trimmed in thick brass and boasts a Federal eagle on the front made of heavy brass with some gilt present. It measures 6 x 4 inches, and has brass trim on the cover.

This staff officer's dress belt and cartridge box is illustrated in Schuyler, Hartley and Graham's Arms and Military Goods Regulations for the Uniform of the Army, Navy, Marine and Revenue Corps, published in 1864 (plate Number 51). This was a standard reference for authorized Union military uniforms, weapons and insignia during the Civil War. Also, refer to Francis A. Lord Civil War Collector’s Encyclopedia Page 6. Militia equipments - officer’s belt and cartridge box.

This accoutrement is rather fragile, but complete and original. The leather of this belt is very pliable, with some separation of the leather and material. The front flap cover on the box is a bit stiff to open.

This is a remarkable chance to obtain a rare staff officer's accoutrement from the Civil War that is completely intact.
