Standard regulation M1851 NCO sword belt plate measuring 50mm by 83mm with a three-piece applied wreath and integral tongue. The left side of the wreath has broken off but the rest remains firmly attached including the left tip of the wreath above the eagle’s wing.

This belt plate shows minor traces of gilt finish on a few high points; the face of the plate generally shows a dark patina with some grey on the right side.

Back of belt plate shows an integral tongue with bench number of 748. The metal retains a dark brown finish with some green-grey patina.

Overall, a nice example of a plate with a three-piece applied wreath which still shows dirt from the recovery location of Orange, Virginia.  [cla] [ph:L]
