This is a nice authentic excavated original Civil War boxplate from a soldier’s cartridge box. This is the plate that went on the outer flap not only for decoration but to help keep the flap closed. It has the crystal clear " US” letters on the front with a very pleasing brownish patina all over. Both of the two original iron loops are missing from the back and it has the majority of the good original lead intact. There is the ink notation on the reverse that states it was recovered in "FAIRFAX VA". This is a town outside of Washington, D.C. It is a fine displaying piece of Civil War history!
