LEECH & RIGDON BELT ADJUSTMENT BUCKLE
This buckle is found on existing saber belts which have all L&R hardware as well as a L&R saber attached. However it is exactly the same buckle as used on some versions of the Enfiled musket sling. L&R did not manufacture everything they sold, in some cases they would buy from other manufactures to produce a finished product. Did they buy these buckles from a local manufacturer who had copied them from the Enfield sling? Did they buy them from a Blockade Runner? No one knows but all agree they are the same buckle. Quite a few of these buckles have been dug in the "Battle of Franklin" area with no other hardware in the immediate area of the buckle. Leading some to believe that by late war this buckle was also used as a waist belt buckle. This is just speculation as I can find photographic evidence of this practice. Keep in mind late war photos of Confederates are very rare.
Long story short, It's a very versatile Confederate buckle with a great history.

MARTINGALE HEART W EAGLE
It measures about 2 1/2 inches tall and the same at the widest point.
PAD LOCK 3 ½ INCH
The supply is still somewhat limited so don't hesitate. They always go fast! The 3 1/2 inch lock is shown in the photo but the locks look just the same with the exception of size. It is a very well made heavy padlock with a brass keyhole cover. 6 heavy iron rivets make this lock as strong as it is functional. The mechanism works very smoothly. No jiggling, which in a lock is a bad thing. It comes with 2 keys just in case you lose one. It works great for an artillery limber chest or any other chest that you may need to secure. It also works well as a lock for locking hand cuffs to leg shackles. You can even keep the Yankees out of the smoke house with one.

LEECH & RIGDON SABER SNAPS
At the onset of the War, Gen. Forrest was a Memphis City Councilman. And as you all know he outfitted his troops from his own pocket or from captured goods. Is there any doubt that he would have used Memphis Novelty Works Company for all they could have supplied? Dug goods from known Forrest camps and the photographic evidence proves without question that many of the Gen. Troopers were equipped with goods from Leech and Rigdon. Our original saber snap shown in the center was dug in the same Confederate Cavalry Camp as the CS shield and oval shown above.
The snaps are made of solid cast brass with a spring steel snap braided directly into the snap. The best design possible for long wear without breakage. The snap measures 2 3/4 inches long. It has a beautiful ornate design that is cast into the brass. The loop measures 1 inch wide so it will fit any standard saber belt. It works great as the end snap on your horse lead too.
