Comments: This relic was acquired directly from the digger, Robert Braswell, Jr. of Gaston, NC., who recovered many fine relics from both North Carolina and Virginia over several decades.

This plate was likely recovered from a farm field and if you like that battle torn appearance then this plate is for you. It will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
