Nice find no matter what. I do not believe it is civil war or confederate.

American digger magazine website has a snake buckle book for sale. They also have a American digger YouTube video that has several snake buckles dug.

Sometimes they came from England with the Enfield belt, cartridge box and cap box and scabbered. Then sometime durring the war, a company in Richmond Va started to make the Enfield accrouterments but without the snake buckle. I have reproduction Enfield equipment for my Enfield rifle. It even has the Richmond co. embossed on it.
