(Click photo to view reverse side if available)

Gilt cast brass with applied die-struck tongue disc. Tongue bar shaped to fit convex disc. Squared belt loops and laurel-leaf wreath distinguish this officers’ stock pattern widely distributed during the mid-19th century. The same form was adopted by a number of police and fire companies, and general use continued through the 1880’s. Examples of this style police plate have been excavated in 1986-1865 sites, but it was primarily post-war. Gilt cast brass with a die-stamped brass tongue disc.
