Click on an image to enlarge

This is an original Civil War cartridge box breast plate with the maker's mark on the back. This is the plate that would have gone on the shoulder sling of a Civil War soldier's cartridge box. This is the circular plate that would have adorned the shoulder strap to a Civil War cartridge box. It has the bold union eagle on the front of the plate. In one talon she holds the arrows of war and in the other talon is the branch of peace. It is the version with the iron attachment loops. Both of the original loops are missing from the back of the plate but it looks good as you can see in the pictures. What makes this one stand out is that it is maker marked on the back of the plate by a stamping in the lead. It still partially reads "W.H. SMITH BROOKLYN". Not many of the makers of Civil War buckles and plates marked their products but this one is nicely marked. This is a fine excavated eagle breastplate with the desirable Smith maker mark on the reverse.
