Brass Belt Tips

These are made by me so they can be “custom” and engraving is possible.  The one on the right is engraved with “Royal Artillery” but can be blank or engraved with other things such as Regiment number.  Belt tip is mounted by indenting the backside into pre-punched holes in the belt.

Brass Belt Tip (pair): $20.00

Brass Powder Horn Spout

Made to follow the British artillery and light companies design during the Rev War and War of 1812.  This brass spout is manufactured with an iron spring.  This is a copy of the original and does not have a “double baffle design” so it is only for “show” and it is highly recommended not to be used with real gun powder.

Brass Powder Horn Spout: $35.00

Shoulder Belt Plates

Shoulder belt plates are made from heavy brass sheet and can be custom engraved. I already have several artworks completed and can quickly engrave plates.  The plates can be oval or rectangular and are normally convex unless otherwise stated.  Two pins on the back mount the plate to the lower belt and a hook attaches to the upper belt to complete the connection.  Prices vary from $40.00 for a simple design to $60.00 for the more complex design. The next few frames show examples of my work.
