Very Scarce Excavated Alabama Volunteer Corps Cartridge Box Plate
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very tough to find original Southern used cartridge box plate. This is the one that was used by the Alabama Volunteer Corp. This version is illustrated as plate 221 on page 125 of the Confederate belt buckle and plate book by Steve Mullinax. The face of the plate has the block style letters "AVC" which stands for the Alabama Volunteer Corps. Mullinax notes that this is the style of small AVC cartridge box plates purchased by the state prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. This is the smaller style, which is patterned after the US model 1839 plate. This one has the clear lettering on the face and on the reverse has the majority of the original lead remaining. It has had some restoration around the edges of the plate which is mentioned for exactness and it is priced accordingly. You can see the lines where the wire loops for attachment to the cartridge box were at one time. This buckle has spent the last several years in the collection of my friend and country music legend Hank Williams, Jr. This is a quite scarce plate from the state of Alabama.
