This is a buckle that was found on the Battlesite of the Little Big Horn in Montana in the 19th century. This buckle is in excellent condition and measures about 1 5/8 inches by about 1 1/4 inches. It is in working condition but does have oxidization on it and was originally part of Maj. Donald Bradley private collection later donated to a museum in Martin South Dakota and after 1987 sold to Dr Ormie Brimmer noted historian and collector of the American West and General George Custer. This buckle was part of his private collection and is a museum de-accession peice. This buckle will come with a COA and appraisal for insurance that has been all notarized. I am not sure what this buckle was used for mabe a amunition sling or something of that sort but the COA states that it was found on a Sioux Warrior. T is a little bit of glue residue on one side from being displayed at the museum for over 30 years. I will let the new owner of this peice decide on if they want to keep it t or they can clean it.
