Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great 1820's Shoulder Belt Plate. This is the version of belt plate that was used for the illustration of Plate 78 on page 58 of the Belt Buckle & Plate Book by O'Donnell & Campbell. They state that this is a shoulder belt plate that was worn by enlisted militia soldiers after 1819 when the regular Army had gone to the rolled brass oval plate. The plate itself is made of thick cast brass with a slight convex curve. It has cast studs and tongue hook applied to the back. It still has both of stud hooks intact with the copper washers that were applied at the factory. This is a cool buckle that is very nice!
