Z1775     Scarce Silvered Tin Volunteer Militia Cap Plate (1820-1835)

Description: Here is a scarce example of a tinned Militia Cap Plate. Unlike the more common brass version, this piece is made of stamped tin covered in silver. There are two solder marks on the back that would have originally held the attachment loops. There is a small tapered tin pipe soldered to the back of the plate. This would have originally held a plume of feathers or pompon.  These tin examples are typically less detailed. You can clearly see there are several cracks in the metal where the higher portions of the pattern rise up.

Measures: 5" x 6.5"

Recovered: Non Excavated

Reference: O'Donnell & Campbell, American Military Headgear Insignia, Figure 610 (tinned version)

Price: $250.00 Sale Pending!

Z1704     Civil War / Early Indian War Era Infantry Lieutenant Colonel  Shoulder Straps

Description: Here is a very nice pair of matching unissued infantry shoulder straps. This particular set is for a Lieutenant Colonel and has a silver leaf instead of a gold leaf for a Major. This set has a cable pattern border which is quite scarce. The cabled border is approximately 3/8" across and is surrounded by an inner and outer jaceron border. According to Dr. Howard Lanham, this pattern was available in the 1864 Schuyler-Hartley and Graham catalogue. The leaves are made of dead and bright bullion to create an accent. The field is a greenish/blue velvet and appears to have faded over the years. While this set is matching in almost every detail, the fabric on the back is slightly different.

Measures: 1.5" x 4.25"

Recovered: Surplus Stocks

Price: $595.00

Z1682     Excavated Cavalry Crossed Sabers Regulation 1858

Recovered: Unknown

Price: $125.00
