US Waist Belt Plate
Item #: LD 214
Click on an image to enlarge
This early style stud hook US waist belt plate has seen some rough treatment. Several bends, lots of lead loss on reverse, and even a dimple above the "S" that looks like a small calibre ball strike. I don't know which battlefield Dr. Lord recovered this plate from but it was most likely a Shenandoah Valley site like so many of his other excvavated relics. Dr. Lord was detecting during the early days when people didn't bother with camps--the battlefields were still littered with relics. This was but one of them.
