This plate was recovered at Drewry’s Bluff by Syd Kerksis, one of the legendary early relic hunters and collectors, author of books on military belt plates and Civil War projectiles. The plate comes with Kerksis’ original paper storage envelope bearing his ink notation that he found it in November of 1958.

The face of the plate has a very nice black patina with light surface dirt and is free of any dings and dents. The US stamping is strong.

Reverse has 100% of the lead fill with both rusted but complete attachment loops.

Item comes displayed in a Riker box with the original storage envelope.  [ad] [ph:L]
