Original Civil War Union infantry enlisted man’s belt. The leather is stiff but still retains its original bridle leather finish. The belt is stamped with the maker mark “E.A. GROSSMAN & Co. NEWARK N.J” as well as “J.C. MILLER/U.S. ORD. DEPT./SUB INSPECTOR.” The brass belt retainer is present, but the hooks are detached from the end of the leather belt. The buckle is the arrow hooked pattern and retains a rich, untouched patina. A nice addition to a Civil War infantry or accoutrement display.
