1865 Marine Emblem Buckle
Found a company that offers a lot of Civil War era memorabilia and replicas. Bought a brass puppy paws buckle that has the 1865 Marine Corps emblem on it.  A puppy paw, the belt is attached by way of three hooks on the back. Also it wraps around your waist right to left.
 
Anyway, I'm making a decorative belt for it. Some minor booboos that won't show when done (my eyes). Belt has U S Marines in the Middle and Semper Fi on either side. Will stamp EGA in when it gets here.

    Looks like other Marines would like one also. There wasn’t an address to order one. That was my original question. So, how do I get one?

    You can order one through the Hanover Brass Site. Be aware that this is not a Marine buckle. It is a U.S. Revenue Cutter Service buckle. I own one myself and proudly wear it. Looks too much like a Marine buckle to not wear it.

    I’d like to sign up for one.

  11. David Fish February 24 2014, 7:39 am

    Looks good to me. Maybe Sgt. Grit can get a contract with them.

    Nuff said
