314 Eagle Panel Plate – nondug.


314  Eagle Panel Plate – nondug.
Less common pre-Civil War variation. Also includes original keeper which are almost always missing. Untouched condition; trace of silver plating at eagle neck area. See American Military Belt Plates by O’Donnell & Campbell, Plate 399 which reads – “Militia Panel Plate, ca. 1840-1850…..Thought to be one of the first panel plates because of copper construction, fine die work and plating. Two unusual panel plate features are the wreath of acorns and oak leaves around the border, and “glory” (stars, rays, motto ribbon) overhead. Display of 17 stars frequently seen on contemporary militia plate.” Tough early plate to find.
