Click on an image to enlarge
This is one of the most beautiful hatplates from the early 1800's. It is the oval style stamped brass hat plate insignia. This style of plate that would have adorned a high grade military hat from the 1820's. This one is the brass material pattern illustrated as figure 79 in the wonderful headgear insignia book by Campbell & O'Donnell. The one was accompanied by the verbal history that it was found in Mobile, Alabama. When it was recovered it was in a few pieces and we had it expertly restored for display and preservation. You can see in the last couple of images what it looked like when it was recovered. The face of the plate has the Union eagle at the top with the laurel branch coming from her beak. In her talons she holds arrows and a lightning bolt. Below her is a patriotic scene with a shield & drum with a flag draped and a stack of muskets in the background. This is a cool looking hat plate from a campsite in Alabama
