Found in woods between Herr’s Ridge & Country Club Road. Plate face is missing its outer edge, & slightly chipped along bottom edge. Eagle remains complete & sharp, exhibiting yellowish, verdigris patina. Reverse exhibits corrosion and oxidation, while remaining solid. Attached loops rusted off. Else VG, and attractive. An excellent “first day” relic.

This piece was once a part of the Iva Rosensteel Rider collection. Mrs. Rider is the sister of Georg Rosensteel, who started the Electric Map museum in Gettysburg. Eventually, it became a part of the Rider collection in Gettysburg, which remained in the family until The Horse Soldier purchased the collection in June 2016.  [jp]
