This is a very nice post-war example of a popular belt plate that caught on in the U.S. military with the oval 1819 patterns and morphed into the round form by the 1830s. It was used widely into the 1850s and beyond by militia with a variety of state seals, emblems and initials of units in addition to the popular eagle. This one is well made, with plain loops but using a wreath border and raised false-embroidered star, which is particularly associated with Texas and Mississippi, but gained wider use as a generally patriotic motif. This is likely a postwar example of the pattern, which remained popular and was even marketed to police by military goods dealers like Horstmann.

This one is in excellent condition. See O’Donnell and Campbell, Figs. 318, 351 and 352 particularly for both prewar and postwar examples.  [sr] [PH:L]
