All "smoothout" leather (bridle) items (black and russet) are finished with period stains or dyes applied using period techniques.  This has all come out of my extensive research on the 19th century tanning industry.  The leather also has built in mold and mildew resistance in these period finishes.  To see pictures of the dyeing process in action please follow the link below.

To see more pictures how they dyed leather during the 19th century.

We use 1860's period techniques to dye leather.  An entire side is dyed at once and allowed three days to fully set up.  The drying process makes the finish water resistant as called for by the Ordnance Dept.

Following period methods has made it difficult to stock leather items so there may be a delay in getting your leather goods.

This way of finishing can cause the dyed surface to turn white in cold weather.  This is a common problem in period leather as well.  This white can be cleared with an application of white vinegar. 

This is all done in order to give you, the consumer the closest copy of the original items as possible.


Some are selling what they call "real" buff that is a yellowish color that is very soft and spongy, but according to the Ordnance dept. of the time the leather should be of a firm consistency, and should not be Spongy.  Our buff leather is specially tanned for us and very closely matches what the original buff leather was like.

Please allow 4 to 6 weeks on all blackened buff orders, due difficulty of dyeing the buff black properly.


Pattern of 1828 Shoulder Belt (Baldric)

Introduced as a replacement for the Pattern of 1808 the Pattern of 1828 differs in that the frog size has been reduced from 3 1/2 " to 2 1/2", the frog stud has been moved to the opposite side of the scabbard from that on the 1808 pattern, and the frog hook has been changed to a stud. Buff examples predominate those of black bridle leather examples.

The scabbard no longer has it's bare leather throat but is covered in a 2 1/2" brass throat attached by copper rivets. The 3" brass finial is attached by two copper rivets as well. This scabbard was in use during the transition period between the Model 1816 bayonet and the Model 1835 bayonet so lengths will vary accordingly to the bayonet used.

The Pattern of 1828 remained in official use until replaced by the Pattern of 1840. They continued in field service until replaced due to wear or damage.

Comes with Round Eagle breastplate.

(Two Rivet Frog) (Black) (Hand Sewn)
This is the only US scabbard made for the Enfield or Austrian by the US Ordnance Dept.
This style belt scabbard made it's appearance on the scene 1859. Similar in construction and appearance as the #2411 but having two copper rivets as well as stitching to secure the scabbard to the frog. Original examples can be found with black bridle leather or rough out leather frogs. These scabbards remained in service until they began being replaced with the seven and eight rivet designs sometime after final approval for the pattern change was issued on February 25, 1863. This doesn't mean that the two rivet disappeared immediately after this date, they are seen in photographs through the end of the war. *As a side note many original scabbards of this type are found with Enfield socket bayonets whether made for them originally or being shaped to them through use.
This scabbard is any excellent choice for those wanting a piece of equipment that can be used from start to finish of the Civil War period. These scabbards can be ordered with rough out or bridle leather frogs. These can be ordered with appropriate manufacturer's markings however we do not make them with inspectors marks.
(Specify if you are using the 1842, 1855 Springfield, or P53 Enfield bayonet)

#HS248      Pattern of February 1863 US Waist Belt Scabbard (Seven Rivet Frog) (fully hand sewn scabbard)   $155.00

As noted above this scabbard made its debut sometime after February 25, 1863. Identical to the #245 scabbard with the exception of the additional rivets. Made with makers marks.  This pattern was made originally for Springfield bayonets only.  This pattern scabbard had several changes over the Pattern of 1859 scabbard the most notable being the "fluted scabbard or tube".  The less known feature is the extra pins added in the brass tip.  The number of pins in the tip was changed from two to four. 
 

These are an excellent choice for a late war impression only. These scabbards can be ordered bridle or blackened buff leather frogs. (Specify if you are using the 1842 , 1855 Springfield or P53 Enfield bayonet)  

Note:  The blackened buff frog specification will be provided with the Gaylord maker mark.
