Item: Excavated US eagle plate.
Construction: Stamped thin sheet brass with solder fill.
Condition: Good, excavated. Its brass face, with its highly detailed eagle, clutching arrows in its right talon and an olive branch in its left, has a deep green patina which is all nicely highlighted by a layer of yellow surface discoloration around the rim. There are two small rust bumps on the front surface which are a result of the remnants of the rusted iron loops bleeding through from the rear. There is surface wear on the top portion of the eagle's left wing. The rear solder is nearly complete with some surface flaking and the two iron attachment loops are no longer present. There is a very minor bend in the body of the plate but otherwise, it has no cracks, breaks, or repairs.
Recovered: Recovered: Brandy Station, VA
Approximate diameter: 63 mm.
Comments: This eagle breast plate will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
