Eagle Shoulder Belt Plate
Item #: LD 210
In the 1950s and 1960s Frank Lord was in the midst of writing a relic column for the fledgling Civil War Times Illustrated. He was aslo writing some of the Centennial era's pioneer books about Civil War artifacts and militaria. He found the time to roam many of the Civil War battlefields near Washington, D.C. This eagle plate was found at Strasburg, Virginia. Like most accoutrement plates found during that era condition is nice--good brass, solid lead fill in reverse. Both iron wire attachment hooks are snapped off and the rim has a few dings, but overall condition is nice--and it was found by Dr. Lord and remained in his collection until he passed away.
