exceptional! pattern of 1839 U. S. BELT PLATE



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

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!
