Civil War Era Cartridge Box Belt Plate, Dug Item From Fredericksburg, Va.:
From the original sale catalog..."Relic cartridge box belt plate recovered at Fredericksburg, VA...raised eagle of brass solder, 63mm.,2 eyes on verso (reverse), dark patina and choice condition for a recovered item."
This is one of the nicer dug belt plates I've come across. No major dings or dents along the edge...upright, solid hooks on the back. Some of the patina has been scraped away along the edge and raised rim, probably from the recovery.
Owned by the same collector since the 1970s.
