Extremely Rare Authentic Confederate Belt Plate To Be Auctioned May 24th!

CS AOT Buckle frontWHAT A RARE BEAUTY!

Just added to our May 24th, Mannboro, VA, auction.

Original Excavated American Civil War Confederate “CS” Army of Tennessee Cast Accouterment belt plate.

Commonly referred to by collectors as the Army of Tennessee “Line in the Hooks” buckle, this plate was found many years ago by an arrowhead hunter in Lexington, Alabama. Lexington saw occupation by both Union and Confederate forces throughout the war and was one of the final resting places for the Army of Tennessee after it’s retreat following the disastrous battles of Franklin and Nashville, TN in late 1864.

The plate has been professionally micrometer measured at 74.3 x 47mm being exactly the measurements given for the type in Steve Mulinax’s definitive book on Confederate Buckles.

The plate exhibits typical traits of crop field excavated period brass and has several plow marks as well as slight wave consistent with plow strikes.  One hook appears to have been broken (which is probably why the plate was lost), the remaining hooks showing typical casting flaws or previous partial breaks. There is typical post excavation wear in various areas most prominently and as typical on the exposed hooks where some bare brass shows, none of which detracts from this rarity 7 plate.

Both the provenance and complete authenticity of the plate are unquestionable.
