Photo of GAF Belt Plate
« on: December 23, 2005, 11:14:18 am »
Gentlemen:

I have received by e-mail several requests to show a picture of the GAF Belt Plate.  Unfortunately, my current computer (and computer knowledge) is not capable of this.  (I'm looking into replacing the confuser, soon.)

Does anyone have a photo or sketch of the GAF Belt Plate they could post either here or on the GAF website?  I can then direct the inquiring personnel to the appropriate location.

Thanking you in advance, and wishing all a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanza, etc.!  Don't eat too much! ;)

Your friend and servant,

Not quite National Geographic quality, I  just slapped it down on the scanner...but it shows the general idea:

Gripmaker,

Scroll down the Barracks topic index to "Need to find a Calvary Rig" and you will find all the answers.  Trailrider is one source.  He has also listed the web site for the manufacturer.  Looks like it will cost you about $14 plus shipping.  I think that I will want one too.

Trailrider,

Are you coming to the NCOWS Convention?  If so, please bring one for me!

Gentlemen:

I'm awaiting a call or e-mail back from Tim Parsley at Art Brass with the latest quote on price and shipping for the GAF belt plates.  For a small number, he can probably get them in a couple of weeks.

I have just a very few GAF belt plates on hand that I am keeping for those who want some type of saber or sword belt made to go with the plate.  The problem I have is that if I sell the few I have separately and then get a number of orders for belts, I may have to wait for the plates as Tim has a lot of other orders to fill beyond a couple of GAF plates.

As soon as Tim gets back to me with the current price and shipping charges, I'll post it and you can contact him directly for the plates.  Keep in mind that if you have a belt already equipped with the hasp sewn and riveted into the left end of the belt, the GAF plate may or may not fit the other hasp. A lot of times, I'll get orders for both a GAF plate-equipped belt and, say, an 1851 Eagle plate, to be interchangeable.  I usually recommend the hasp be attached using Chicago screwposts instead of the regular arrangement, so the hasp can be changed out.  SOMEtimes, if you get lucky, it is possible to get a GAF plate and the 1851 Enlisted Eagle plate that are close enough they can use the same hasp.

Dr. Bob,
Unfortunately, due to prior committments, I won't be able to make the NCOWS convention.  Doubt I'm going to even get to the SHOT Show this year (2006)! :(  Just too much going on locally.

Wishing all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year, I remain,

Gentlemen:
Here is the latest update on the GAF Belt Plates from Tim Parsley of Art Brass

Retail cost ranges from $16.00 (for the regular plate) to $19.50 (probably for the French Back style...though he didn't enumerate).
Shipping for single plates is $5.00  Shipping for a couple of them will probably be close to the same.

You can call him at 1-804 559-3679
                     FAX:1-804-559-3992
                   e-mail: TIM@CIVILWARBUCKLES.COM
                   website: CIVILWARBUCKLES.COM    GAF plate is NOT currently shown.

As I mentioned previously, I only have a couple of the GAF plates on hand for those wanting them on belts.  Tim was most co-operative back when we started the belt plate project, and deserves our support.  Plus, he's got a LOT of neat other plates and buckles.

Hope this is of help.

Happy New Year to all!
