Gilt cast brass with applied die-struck tongue disc. Tongue bar shaped to fit convex disc. Squared belt loops and laurel-leaf wreath distinguish this officers’ stock pattern widely distributed during the mid-19th century. The same form was adopted by a number of police and fire companies, and general use continued through the 1880’s. Examples of this style police plate have been excavated in 1986-1865 sites, but it was primarily post-war. Gilt cast brass with a die-stamped brass tongue disc.

The belt is made of 8 oz. leather, length is custom fit to customer's size with a brass hook and 2 keepers. Available in Russet, Black or Natural Oiled (White Buff if available). This belt is made to the dimensions of your buckle.
