US Cartridge Box Plate

Item: US Cartridge Box Plate
Use: Cartridge box plates were attached to the outer flap of the soldier's cartridge box. Not only ornamental but more practically used as a weight to keep the cartridge box flap closed to prevent cartridge loss. See the additional images in this listing for an image showing its use.

Stamped thin sheet brass with solder fill and iron attachment loops.
Condition:
Excellent, excavated. Its brass front, with its tall raised letters "US", has an overall olive green patina. The rear has a near complete complement of solder with very minor dent at one portion of the rim edge. The attachment loops are present and straight up. The plate has no cracks, breaks, bends, or repairs.
Recovered:
 Unknown
Approximate size:
 57 x 88 mm.
Comments:
  This large excavated US cartridge box plate will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War plate or general relic collection.
