Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War boxplate from a soldier's cartridge box. This is the plate that went on the outer flap not only for decoration but to help keep the flap closed. It has the crystal clear "US" letters on the front. What is special about this plate is that it has the maker's mark still clearly visible stamped into the lead. You can see the maker mark of the Boyd & Sons firm of Boston. They were one of the premiere makers of accoutrement plates during the Civil War. It still has one of the iron loops off of the back of the plate as well as a very nice amount of the original lead. This one displays beautifully!
