U.S. 1858 Pattern enlisted infantryman's belt equipped with 1839 Pattern "US" belt plate, socket bayonet, scabbard, and Watertown Arsenal cap pouch. The leather belt is attached to a die-struck brass "US" plate with arrow hooks and the reverse stamped, in part, "B&D[?] / SNY[?]" (leather pliable, with crazing and surface wear throughout). The plate has typical dings and dents from service. Belt exterior retains traces of mostly indecipherable embossed stamp reading, in part, "York." The cap pouch with outer flap having integral latch tab (some crazing and cracking to leather throughout; significant oxidation to brass fittings; retains wool, lacking pick). Inner flap stamped "Watertown / 1863 / Arsenal." Belt loops, latch tab, and brass finial all present and complete. Overall, a nice Civil War belt rig that shows signs of use in the field.
