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 still intact on the back and it has a fine amount of the original lead. The soldier must have held the plate on the box with the iron wire that is still attached. It is a fine displaying excavated piece of Civil War history!
