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.  There is one small spot of rust leaching through from the back. The plate’s reverse has 99% of the lead fill. Only one of the iron loops remains, and it is bent over. Faint remnants of a maker’s stamp is present; “BOYD & _ONS / BOSTON”.

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 January of 1958 at Resaca, Georgia, on East Dalton Road along the line of the 20th Army Corps.  [jet] [PH:L]
