Best described here by our photo illustrations, this all original and untouched nonexcavated Volunteer Maine Militia cartridge box plate offers a most eye appealing rich chocolate age patina on its face with the desirable lead soldered iron wire loops on the reverse (see: Philadelphia’s War Library & Museum collection Military Order of the Loyal Legion), as opposed to the more usually encountered, just pre Civil War, lead filled examples. All a product of the 1850s these desirable V M M plates were pressed into service by state issue in the early part of the Civil War and are well documented by treasured excavation finds from early Maine camp sites. Later replaced by regulation US plates, many troops of Maine regiments particularly the 2nd, 4th and 5th Maine Infantries on through the 18th (better known as the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery) were eager to retain the early Civil War issue V. M. M. plates as testimony to their veteran status. Veterans of the 2nd Regiment who were moved to the hard fought 2Oth Maine Infantry just before Gettysburg were no exception. With existing prewar V M M plates well exhausted in the state by early Civil War issue and the majority of the issue examples cast aside in the field as has been well established by modern day camp site diggers, few non excavated examples of the elusive VMM cartridge box plates survived. This fact and the reputation of the Maine regiments using the plate have made it one of the most sought after Union box plates among collectors. This one offers unquestionable evidence of period use and originality while remaining in pleasing condition with no issues.
