This would make a great addition to a cavalry officer’s display. The breastplate (breast band) is wide, painted yellow in a soft mellow tone, and has black leather edging around a central leather shield and along the two side straps. The paint shows some cracking from flexing, and some dirt and stains, but there are no substantial areas of loss. All fittings are in place and secure.

The central shield is wide, 7 by 5 ½ inches, mounted with a large brass American eagle with US shield on its chest and holding arrows and olive branch. The side straps extend 29 inches to each side, measuring along the lower edge from the central point of the shield. Each one is fitted with four flat brass bosses of decreasing diameter and the strap itself tapers down to 1 inch at the very tip, which is mounted with a small brass ring. A 7/8 inch wide black leather strap is fixed on the rear of the leather shield and extends about 20 below its lower point with six adjusting holes that would have fixed it to another strap coming up from the girth. The leather shield also has a narrow horizontal flat loop on the reverse through which an additional strap (not with it) could pass from the girth strap up the bottom of the bridle nose band if the rider wished to use it as a standing martingale.    [sr] [ph:L]
