This is a fine looking excavated eagle breastplate from the Civil War. This is the circular plate that would have adorned the shoulder strap to a Civil War cartridge box. It has the bold union eagle on the front of the plate. In one talon she holds the arrows of war and in the other talon is the branch of peace. On the back of the plate it has an excellent amount of the lead remaining as well as the rusted sport where the original iron attachment loops were at one time. One of them is still present. There is also an old paper label that states it was recovered in the area of Antietam (Sharpsburg), Maryland on May 18th of 1991. It is an excellent piece of Civil War history!
