Z1166 Eagle Breastplate, Regulation 1826 Pattern
Description: Here is a very nice eagle breastplate recovered from a hospital site in Cold Harbor, Va. This one still has both of the iron loops which are solid. The back retains nearly all of the lead solder and there is one rust burr in the very middle. The face has a very nice patina and the plate is flat as can be! It's getting harder and hard to find plates like this today!
Recovered: Cold Harbor / Field Hospital
