Title:  

Officer's Sword Belt Buckle

Content Description: 

The Navy's uniform regulation issued on February 19, 1841, specified the design for officers' swords for the first times. At the same time, a gilded brass belt buckle for a black leather sword belt, complimenting the sword's design, was also authorized. Commodore Stephen Champlin (1789-1870), commander of the iron sidewheel steamer Michigan on the Great Lakes during the Mexican War, owned this example.
