This Civil War Maker, Inspector and "US" Marked Calvary Carbine Sling Buckle Was Recovered in NW Georgia. The buckle is marked: "E. GAYLORD / CHICOPEE / MASS", "T./ J./ SHEPARD" and "US". Emmerson Gaylord was the manufacturer and TJ Shepard was the inspector. The buckle weighs 1.8 ounces. Although made of heavy brass with a beautiful green patina, there are several bends to the buckle and the center bar is cracked. One tongue moves freely but the other is frozen. We purchased this item directly from the digger and it was found on private property with the owner's permission. Please see pictures for condition. All of our artifacts are guaranteed to be authentic.
