Click on an image to enlarge

This is a beautiful original military hatplate from the 1820's. It is the stamped brass plate that went on the front of the military hat for decoration. This one is a variation of the version of the one used for the illustration of figure 609 in the wonderful headgear insignia book by Campbell & O'Donnell entitled "American Military Headgear Insignia". This one has a gorgeous look with one of the most beautiful untouched tones you could ever hope for on the face of the plate. These were made of stamped brass. It is reported that the silver washed ones are for officers instead of enlistedmen who wore the gilded brass ones. The face of the plate has the beautiful Union eagle in the center with the draping flags behind her. Below the eagle it has the shield with the arms radiating around the shield that include cannon, rifles and sabers. Around the edge of the plate it has the wreath design that gives the plate a beautiful look that stands out from most of the plates that you encounter. The one in the book has the pointed tips and this variant has the rounded tips. It comes beautifully matted and framed and is ready to hang on your wall. The frame measures 6-1/4th inches by 11-1/4th inches in overall size. This is a beautiful piece and is nice enough for any collection.
