A regulation 1839 Pattern infantry enlisted man's cartridge belt plate, sheet brass with embossed "US" and lead-filled back with remnants of two steel loops for securing to cartridge box.

A minie ball has pierced through between the "U" and "S" and area around lead ball is concave from impact. Lead on bullet and back appear to have an authentic patina. This is an interesting and rare find, a great addition for any cartridge, bullet, or belt plate collector! Condition: Dimensions:
