Dear Carl,

I just had to show you this. It's reduced in size, but this is the 1826 pattern US shoulder belt plate from the Monson site. I wanted to do more, but this took me six hours to clean. The crust was a killer! First made in 1826, these were used as enlisted men's bayonet belt shoulder plates until 1855 and by NCO's on their over-the-shoulder sword belts through the Civil War. Prior to 1851, infantry plates were silvered (or, often, tinned) to match their "white metal" buttons. Artillery plates were lightly gilt washed. This had no evidence of any plating and so I believe it to have been artillery issue, ca. 1832-1840. The earliest of this pattern plate had a different eagle design and were iron backed with soldered hooks. These were very unpopular, and from 1828 on they were all apparently lead/solder filled on the backs. While this was made during the Seminole War period, many of these remained in service and saw use during the War between the States.

I'm leaving this bright metal for the time being, but if it suffers spotting (as many things do there), I'll darken it. I may not have much done when I return on the 18th to see my daughter, but I'll have this for you at least. It turned out MUCH better than I thought it would. I don't often feel proud of a job I do (most is really quite routine) but I have to say that this one made me feel a tinge of pride. It was a challenge!!!

Since Harry recreates the Seminole War period, I'm sending a copy of this pic to him as well.

Thought you'd enjoy seeing it...

Take care!

John
