US Waist belt Plate (Smith)
Item #: JSM2182
I love the early plates and was tempted to keep this one. It is a product of W.H. Smith of Brooklyn as evidenced by the distinctive die-work and the maker's mark, though obscured, reveals several of the stamped letters in the lead filler. Stud hooks are good, lead is good, and face is pretty even brown patina. The curve is very nice and typical of Smith's waist belt plates.
