    Civil War Buckles?

    Howdy. I found these today in a spot where I've previously found some CW stuff (there was a Union camp there), as well as a lot of 20th century stuff. I wondered if these bits came off knapsacks or similar. Thanks for your input!

    The double tongue suspender buckle could be CW. But they were used well into the 20th C as well.

    ...awful small width to be a suspender.......imagine a strap digging into your shoulder.Most of those were used on the back of trousers as waist slack adjusters,could be pre C-W,or post as said.I dont recall ever seeing one with the tooth landings like that though
