We’re going to take a brief hiatus from the relic world, but we will be back soon. Apologies in advance if our replies are delayed but there’s no paid time off (or healthcare benefits) at BulletandShell. The East coast syndicate running it is a bunch of taskmasters so we have to sneak off whenever we can.

Location Recovered:

Model 1839 "baby" US beltplate. I can see the stubs of where the iron wire hooks went as shown in the scan from Mike O'Donnell's book. That would make this construction pre 1844 because heavier hooks were used from then on until this buckle was completely phased out for the common larger ones.
