M00426 - Snake Buckle with adjuster

Item Number: M00426

Item Title: Snake Buckle with adjuster

Price: $150

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Model:

Type:

Book: Mullinax page 112

Location Recovered:

Description:Snake missing one of the belt loops but having the adjuster which is rarely found. This is the most common type of these and a replacement loop can probably be easily found if desired. Just make sure the circular loop is split to straddle the belt loop -- the fake ones are brazed onto, not around, the loop.

I know this is an old military buckle because I got it in a group of them. They were all made in England. It is not a cheap reproduction made in Pakistan. These made up part of the belt rig of the P53 Enfields and were imported through the blockade frequently. They continued to be used by English forces after our Civil War.

Loop is 62mm, adjuster in 66mm and snake is 43.5mm long.
