Nicely Priced! Excavated Original Civil War Cartridge Box Eagle Breastplate
Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original excavated eagle plate that at one time would have adorned the shoulder sling of a Civil War soldier's cartridge box. This pattern of plate is known to collectors as the eagle breastplate. It has the bold Union eagle on the brass face of the plate. The eagle has the arrows of war in one of her talons and the other talon has the laurel branches of peace. As you can see the plate has the damage from the years of being exposed to the elements and it is priced accordingly. The back of the plate has some of the original lead remaining. Both of the iron loops that would have affixed the plate to the cartridge box shoulder strap are missing in action after the years in the ground. This is a very nice displaying eagle breastplate for the price.
