While our photo illustrations will do best in assessing condition, suffice it to say this regulation of 1839 US oval waist belt plate remains in exceptional, unissued condition, while offering good evidence of age and originality. The die struck sheet brass face has never been polished or cleaned and retains its sharp edges with no dents, scratches or dings and offers a soft untouched natural age patina. The solder filled back is in compatible condition with an even natural age patina and sports the regulation die struck single arrow clasp and hook. With federal and state use from inception through the advent of the more familiar and much larger two arrow US plate of the same basic design, most of these small sized plates were manufactured in the 1840’s and 1850’s. With a rich history, this small US oval plate is most quickly associated with the Mexican War and frontier West yet a good many found their way into the Civil War by virtue of early war state issue from existing state arsenal stores. (see: AMERICAN MILITARY BELT PLATES by O’Donnell & Campbell) Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
