Title Coldstream Guards waist belt clasp, other ranks
Nationality British
Period c 1914
Sold

This is the standard CG other ranks belt plate, worn from the introduction of the new pattern tunic in 1855 until current times. By virtue of the abrasion to the central device (common practice among Guardsmen in the late 19th / early 20th centuries - for a better shine) and the colour of the brass, I suspect its date is earlier rather than later.

This buckle would have been worn on the white buff belt with the red full dress tunic and bearskin.

Its condition is excellent apart from the abrading of the central device and some service wear to the rest of the piece.
