This is a beautiful original military hatplate from the 1st half of the 1800’s. It is the stamped brass plate that went on the front of the military hat for decoration. This one is very similar to the one illustrated as figure 629 in the wonderful new headgear insignia book by Campbell & O’Donnell entitled "American Military Headgear Insignia”, which we sell. This one has a gorgeous look and even has the original plume holder intact on the reverse. The cap loops have been replaced somewhere along the line and now have an attractive look. On the reattachment the right hand loop went through the brass face and is mentioned for exactness and is priced accordingly. The face of the plate has the beautiful Union eagle in the center with the "E Pluribus Unum” banner above her. Below the eagle it has the stand of arms that include cannon, rifles and sabers. They state in the book that this plate would have been made circa 1825-1840. This plate was part of the impressive collection amassed by James A. Hart. Mr. Hart Was a major contributor to the headgear insignia book. This is a beautiful piece and is nice enough for any collection.
