This Federal belt plate is of the regulation 1839 pattern. This belt plate looks to have come out of a fire pit where it was burnt to reclaim the lead.  Constructed in the die-struck and rolled brass method, the brass accoutrement’s face shows a clear “US”. Face shows oxidation and has a patchy green-brown patina. Face and edges also show some loss from fire damage. No lead remains in the back but the complete arrow hook device remains intact. Digger’s name is written on back.  Interesting relic.  [jet]
