This U.S. issue Civil War rig is an especially nice example. The holster is maker marked, which most of these holsters were not. The holster is completely intact with no damages or losses. All the stitching is original and also completely intact. The sewn-in toe plug is original and still sewn in place. The belt loop is sewn and riveted in place with its original copper rivets. The belt loop shows the makers name "E. GAYLORD". E. Gaylord of Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts was a supplier to the U.S. Army from 1863 - 1865. The waist belt has an 1844 pattern plate and a brass sheet metal keeper at the opposite end. The belt shows a "US" stamping at the middle of the belt, but the makers stamping under the "US" is illegible. The cartridge pouch has a maker's mark stamped under the cover that is also illegible. The rig is in very good overall condition, still showing some of its high gloss finish, the rest flaked off. The leather is still soft and supple, black in color, and shows no recent oiling. There is no leather damage or losses and all stitching is intact. Toy gun in photos not included.
