Waist Belt Plate, Regulation 1851 Enlisted - Circa 1861-1863

(Click photo to view reverse side if available)

Cast brass plate with integral eagle motif and tongue applied 3 piece nickel-silver wreath. The quality of the motif indicated a follow-up strike in a metal die, or it was cast in a plaster or metal mold. No bench number. Early-war enlisted plate contracted by the ordinance department (or a state) measurably larger than the 1861 regulation width. It exhibits especially fine detail with stars in the shield, a double row above the motto, and no “edge of clouds”.
