Item: Federal sword belt plate.
Construction: Cast brass with integral eagle motif and tongue. Applied three piece nickel-silver wreath.
Condition: Excellent, non-excavated. Its brass has a very pleasing lightly toned-brass patina. The front, with its stippled background, shows a highly detailed eagle clutching arrows in its right talons and an olive branch in its left, along with raised rays and stars. The belt attachment bar is present and the benchmark number of "707" is clearly stamped in a corner next to the belt attachment tongue. This plate has no cracks, breaks, bends, or repairs.
Comments: An example of this plate is pictured in the second edition of O'Donnell and Campbell's "American Military Belt Plates", as plate 618 on page 376. This sword belt plate will be an excellent addition to any Civil War plate or general relic collection.
Approximate size: 50 x 84 mm.
