#15004 - Battle Damaged US Belt Plate
This is a Union enlistedman's brass US belt plate of the arrowhook variety. Has medium brown patina to brass. There was an impact on rim near the S. The force was strong enough to rip off one of the arrowhooks. Looks like the trooper tried to salvage plate by filling a lead loss near the rim damage with lead in field. But likely the plate did not sit well with one hook and was abandoned as soon as he could get a new belt plate. A neat dug CW relic. These US belt plates are a favorite collectors' item and harder to obtain now.
