Item is in good condition. Brass face with typical eagle stamping. Light wear on the edges. Back has most of its lead fill with moderate pitting. The wire loops are missing. This plate is for use on the shoulder sling of the regulation infantry cartridge box.  Recovered at Gettysburg by Ken Bream.

This is from the Ken Bream collection that was sold at auction in October 2021. Mr. Bream was a 1970 graduate of Gettysburg High School and life-long relic hunter and collector. His parents managed the Stuckey’s Restaurant that was once located on the north-west corner of the intersection of Emmitsburg and Wheatfield Roads. In the late 1960s through the early 1970s Ken worked on the Eisenhower Farm as a groundskeeper, maintenance man, and general helper for the Eisenhower’s. For many years, he was the Gettysburg Dog Enforcement Officer.  This was lot #167.   [jet] [ph:L]
