GEORGIA WAIST BELT PLATE FROM GETTYSBURG

$2,250.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 766-1999

Offered here is a Confederate waist belt plate. The brass face exhibits the Georgia State Seal. These state militia plates were popular in the 1850s and saw continued use throughout the Civil War.

Stamped brass face with lead fill and “puppy paw” hook setup.

This was recovered from a wet area and has some condition issues because of that. There is some loss of detail on the face and nearly all of the raised edge is gone. Lead back shows only minor loss and all hooks remain. Despite all of the above, the Georgia Seal in the center is clearly visible and displays well.

Recovered in 1980 south of the Spangler’s Spring meadow near the location of McAllister’s Mill along Rock Creek. This location was a temporary site of the First Division, Second Corps.

A very rare Confederate plate recovered at Gettysburg.  [jet] [ph:JET]
