FRENCH EAGLE SHAKO PLATE FROM WATERLOO

$895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 88-130

Very rare and extremely desirable Eagle shako plate of an infantryman of Napoleon's Imperial (Young) Guard. One of a handful known! This one was excavated around 1912 at Waterloo. It measures 3 1/2 inches in height and 2 1/2 inches across. There were 4 bronze loops on the obverse to facilitate attachment to the front of the shako (2 remain intact). The stamped brass plate shows no repairs but has a couple of almost invisible age or ground action cracks.

Absolutely genuine it came from a 19th century collection in Philadelphia along with dozens of other dug items from Waterloo (See British Guards' box plate listed from the same collection). It was subsequently in the famous Daniel Adolphe collection of New Rochelle NY and later the property of Professor I.K. Hay of Lancaster PA. Historic. [pe] [ph:L]
