A nice US enlisteman's belt rig with a puppy paw US belt plate. The leather has a waxed finish and is in overall great condition. There is very little to no crazing and the leather remains supple and ready to display in a case or on a uniform. It still retains the leather keeper. The belt plate shows wear and use with the dings and mars seen on the face.

Otherwise this is an honest US belt rig with no apologies. This belt rig was published in the article, "The Strange History of Buff Leather - Its Origins and Military Applications" Spring Volume 68:1 in the Company of Military Historians and in the article, "Military Leather In The 19th Century, Its Methods and Secrets".
