Louisiana Sword Belt Plate -
Circa 1840’s

(Click photo to view reverse side if available)

Die-stamped brass face, lead filled, brass tongue. Note the one we carry is sand-cast brass. This well-struck plate resembles the lead-filled US Model 1851 sword plate. Its craftsmanship indicates northern (or European) manufacturer probably during the 1850’s. After the war, the La. motto was altered to read “Union first”. Many solid cast versions of this plate were produced after the war.
