Early-War U.S. Puppy Paws Belt Plate
The rounded knobs on the back of this US belt buckle, used to attach it to a leather belt, give it its name as a "puppy paw" style belt buckle. This is the correct Federal Belt Plate for use throughout the American Civil War and was in use from 1839 - 1863. This belt plate is for use on standard waist belts such as our leath-012. Approximate Length: 3-1/2", Height: 2-1/4"
