Title 4th Foot (the King's Own Royal Regiment) officer's waist belt clasp
Nationality British
Period c 1855-81
Sold

These buckles were introduced in 1855 and were worn until the abolition of the regimental numbering system in 1881 when county titles replaced the numbers. It is on its original white patent leather belt, with sword slings, as worn by all infantry officers.

The belt is somewhat distressed and the buckle has been broken at some point and silver soldered on one of the floral supports (left hand corner as you wear it, right hand as you look at it). However, this has been neatly done and the repair and condition is reflected in the price for what is quite a rare regimental example.

Incredibly, I received your shipment today. Super fast delivery, I was expecting it on Saturday. The helmet was, as you said, 100%. The side cap is excellent also...
