This "US" cartridge box plate is in very good condition and is constructed of stamped sheet brass with a solder filled rear and iron wire attachment loops. The brass face has aged into a very nice chocolate brown patina and the rear solder is nearly complete with some areas of surface flaking. The iron loops though rusty, are complete and straight up. It was recovered in the Richmond, VA area in the 1950 - 60's by local Virginia relic hunter, Jim Cullinan. Jim was one of the early Civil War relic hunters that started out with a true "army mine detector" that actually required a backpack to operate. This plate is actually a very nice example that has no cracks, breaks, bends or repairs and will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection. Approx. 54 x 85 mm.
