Waist Belt Plate, Regulation 1851 Enlisted - Circa 1861

(Click photo to view reverse side if available)

Cast brass plate with integral tongue and applied stamped nickel-silver wreath. Round recess cast into back to even thickness. Use of two rivets instead of stitching to secure eagle wreath plate. Dates from beginning of 1864. The “Hanger” providence is reinforced by the rounded interior of the belt loop and absence of a bench number. Worn by General Phil Sheridan during Indian fighting days.

Note: Commonly used for NCO plate by reenactors. Photography lighting does not allow nickel-silver wreath color to show properly.
