                  Eagle Plate Marked W H SMITH BROOKLYN with Star Carving

This excavated eagle plate is in good condition and is not only partially marked with its manufacturer's stamp of "W. H. SMITH BROOKLYN" but also has two five-pointed stars carved into the rear solder.  One star is partially obscured by extruding rust from the remnants of the iron attachment loops.  To see the stars and manufacturer's mark, be sure to see all enlargement pictures by clicking the thumbnail image to the left.  Recovered from Chancellorsville, VA. area, the brass face of this fine plate has a very pleasing dusty brown patina and is flawless without any cracks or repairs.  While the rear has a complete compliment of solid solder, the two iron belt attachment loops have decayed away from ground action.  The plate does have a slight bend as you will see in the additional enlargements images.  This plate will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.  Approx. 65 mm.   SOLD
