Description

This is a nice untouched 1885 Cavalry saber belt, complete with waist belt, buckle, leather slide, brass hanger slide with dismount hook, and the 1885 saber hangers. ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL marked near keeper side on leather.

Wear on the waist belt is even, with a good deal of the original bridle leather worn, and crackled. The leather is slightly dry, and this would look fine if treated properly. Surface finish on the hangers is similar with most wear showing on the edges. ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL stamped on shorter hanger.  Brass hanger is fine with R.I.A. stamp on reverse. The hangers still have the original leather tightening slides.

In very good condition, with potential for betterment.
