Z981 New York Militia Waist Belt Plate
Description: Here is a very nice early New York panel waist belt plate. It was recovered at an unknown site in Connecticut many years ago by a local relic hunter. This one was cleaned but the patina is very nice! The tongue and attachment bar are still in place. The iron keepers have rusted off which is common on dug examples. This plate still has a little bit of gilt peaking through on the front. This plate is relatively flat but does show a little tweaks due to use. This was recovered by a digger in the Connecticut area many years ago and is fresh to the market.
Measures: 53mm x 78mm
