Oval “VMM” plate dug at Gettysburg along the Taneytown Road near the Artillery Ridge Campground.

The face of the plate is dark with a smooth even patina that clearly shows the letters “VMM.” The edge of the face have some heavier discoloration from ground action. There is one very small freeze crack on the right edge.

Reverse has approx. 45% of the lead fill and the rusted remains of the base of the iron eyelets. Neither eyelet remains.

It is known that the 3rd Maine of the 1st Division of the 3rd Corps was in the area where this plate was recovered. During the battle of Gettysburg the regiment was hotly engaged in Pitzer’s Woods and the Peach Orchard losing, in addition to their National colors, 23 men killed, 50 wounded, 15 captured and 6 missing.  [ad]
