This excavated Pattern 1839 US cartridge box shoulder sling plate (Eagle breast plate) has a smooth brown patina. The brass face features an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch.  The plate’s reverse has 99% of the lead fill. The two iron loops are rusty but remain securely in place.

This relic was recovered by Sid Kirksis who was a pioneer in the field of relic hunting. Sid recorded the recovery information on a small envelope which comes with this plate. This particular plate was recovered in July of 1960 in the area of the 19th Army Corps.
