Item: Eagle Plate - NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer)
Construction: Stamped thin sheet brass with solder fill and iron wire hooks.
Condition: Good, excavated. Its brass face has aged into a green patina with some areas covered with a light layer of encrusted yellow soil. The plate shows a detailed eagle, clutching arrows in its right talon and an olive branch in its left. There are three areas found on the front that show surface rust which has leached through from the rear where the three rear iron hooks would have been attached. The rear retains most of its solder and shows the remnants of where the three wire hooks, distinctive to NCO plates, once were. A couple areas of the rim shows chipping and some areas have minor bends. There are no repairs.
Recovered: Brandy Station, VA
Approximate diameter: 64 mm.
Comments: NCO eagle plates are much more difficult to recover than your standard eagle plate and, if you like that excavated/dug look, then this example will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
