Z1379 Federal Regulation 1839 Pattern Cartridge Box Plate (Rare Brass Looped Variant)
Description: Here is one that you just don't see every day. They are rare to dig and even rarer to find in non excavated condition. This is the version with the rare large brass attachment loops. This one has a nice face with some dents and waves from use. The back retains all of the lead solder. Both large brass loops are intact and upright. I have been fortunate enough to find two of these on the market. I have another listed with a better face but the hooks are matching. If only we could have the best of both worlds! I have sold a lot of rare maker marked plates, and I can tell you, this is a rare variant!
Measures: 57mm x 89mm
Recovered: Non Excavated
