Regulation US 1839 pattern plate for the cartridge box, die struck rolled brass with raised US and rim, lead solder filled back to anchor iron wire loops for attachment, stiffness to the plate, and weight to help keep the box flap down if unlatched. Well defined letters and rim. Some light edge dings along the top, slightly deeper on left. Nice greenish brown tones with some gray on the edge. Fill is in place on reverse, showing gray and light brown with some shallow oxidation around the edge. The iron wire loops are gone, but their bases show. The letters on this are rather boxy and the “U” is quite squared off along the bottom- an interesting die variant.

Fredericksburg, of course, was the site of Burnside’s disastrous battle in 1862 and further fighting in May 1863 as part of the Chancellorsville campaign.  [sr] [PH:L]
