202 Philadelphia Reserve Brigade Buckle, Pennsylvania Militia, Enlisted, ca. 1862.



 
202 Philadelphia Reserve Brigade Buckle, Pennsylvania Militia, Enlisted, ca. 1862.

During the war many members of the RB served in Virginia with the 119th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry between 1862-1865. Exceptional condition and one of the most attractive state seal buckles; no need to think about upgrading on this one. Lead back has “dimple” as correct on the original plates.
