$350.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 480-312

This excavated Pattern 1839 oval US cartridge box plate has a perfect dark patina, typical of relics dug long ago. The brass face is smooth with a central “US”.

The plate’s reverse has 95% of the lead fill remaining and exhibits a pitted appearance. Neither of the two iron loops remains. The lead backing features two stamps, “W.H. WILKINSON / SPRINGFIELD, MASS.” and “T.J. SHEPARD”. A paper label is taped to the back. This is the original clipped description from an old printed Horse Soldier catalog.

This is accompanied by an old Horse Soldier Letter of Authenticity and photos.

Recovered from the Confederate position at the base of the “Mule Shoe” or “Bloody Angle” at Spotsylvania, Virginia. Originally acquired from the Wendell Lang collection.   [jet] [ph:L]
