Re: Vicksburg Sharp Shooter (VSS) Two piece tongue and wreath
I think the owner of the White Oak Museum, just outside of Fredericksburg, VA has one on exhibit that he found years ago. I think there was an article in North South Trader years back that the owner showed along with the two-piece buckle. I don't know the date of the issue, but you might search their back issues.
