This USMC Cap Plate displays a large eagle facing to its right, perched on a large diagonally oriented anchor leaning in the opposite direction. Unlike the modern restrikes , this cap plate displays nice patina, and iron (magnetic) wire attachments which have been soldered to the reverse. Iron wire attachments were typical of mid-nineteenth century productions in contrast to the usual single strand brass wire attachments soldered to the reverse on modern reproductions. Wonderful detail to the eagles wings. This has not been cleaned and displays very nice patina. This cap plate originates from a private USMC collection. Due to the rarity of this item, it will be shipped via USPS, Insured, with adult signature required. A historical USMC pre civil war cap plate for the advanced collector.
