Z2812     Federal Regulation 1839 Pattern US Dragoon or Rifleman Waist Belt Plate with Leather Patch (Boyd & Sons Boston) 1847-1851

Description: Here is a pretty scarce unissued or lightly used belt plate with the leather patch on the back. I've sold several dug examples of this plate that were unmarked. This one still has the maker marked leather patch. These patches were to prevent the lead from rubbing off on the waist belts. This example still retains a gilted finish with a few very small bumps along the edge.

Backmark: BOYD & SONS / BOSTON

Measures: 56 mm x 88 mm

Recovered: Non Excavated

Reference" O'Donnell & Campbell Plate 486
