Offered here is a very nice Mexican War era 1839 pattern oval US waist belt plate for infantry. These early infantry plates mirrored the narrow belts worn by infantry during the Mexican War and into the 1850s. Plate is constructed of die-struck sheet brass, lead filled, with a single brass arrowhead hook and clasp embedded in the lead.

In overall very good condition with just a few dings on the face and rim. Back side is complete with hooks. This oval belt plate measures 70mm long x 40mm high.

Interestingly, the army went to the stud back fasteners later and then reverted to the arrowhead style during the Civil War. These have always been a bit scarce.  [jet] [ph:L]
