SOUTHERN NATION BELT RIG WITH PERCUSSION CAP BOX

Regular price $2,295.00 Sale

Original Civil War Confederate Southern Nation Belt Rig with beautiful patina. This example was recovered by Brian Akins of Rebel Relics from a family near the Battle Of Stones River in Murfreesboro, TN. Oral history is that it was from an Alabama Infantry Soldier that had died on the property. Comes with a leather belt that I believe was made from a Federal Cartridge Box Sling. There's a spot on the back where a breastplate drops right in. Leather is dry and shows a good bit of crazing but is still flexible. Also has a rebel Percussion Cap Box with the single loop on the reverse. The Federal M1839 Waist belt plate has arrow hooks and a deep aged patina. It was turned upside down for SN  "Southern Nation". This is a textbook example of Confederate Soldiers improvising with what was available to them. Displays strong in any Confederate Collection!  Would look really good with a CS Pistol Box. Please see all photos.
