Ok these are a bit out of my era, I think the 2 are CW pattern but what is the lower left one? looks early. I need to make an offer on them, any ballpark value?

As always it would be nice to see better pictures especially the back on early US buckles.
The eagle on the lower left buckle resembles a reverse cartrige belt box plate eagle. Without seeing the back it appears to be an early thin stamped brass militia belt plate. My guess about 1841 more or less. Upper right looks like a fantasy piece. Most certainly not Civil War. Without seeing the backs of the other 2 plates it is difficult to say whether they are civil war or Indian wars. They are enlisted plates.

Thanks Steve. These are all the pics I have right now. The upper right one is from a fraternal lodge of some sort(odd fellows, etc) but it is the others I am concerned about.

So officers would have the silver wreath then?
