Excellent condition Confederate enlisted variety sword belt plate, tongue portion, of the standard issue tongue and wreath plate. This is a scarce variety which has a bit of a rounded serif on the letters. Exact location dug is unknown but most all of the relics that came in this old collection were recovered from the battlefield and camp areas of Richmond, Fredericksburg and Petersburg, Virginia from private property with the permission of the owners. 100% GUARANTEED original and authentic and as-found (just with the surface dirt rinsed off). This is likely a Virginia manufactured plate and is referenced in Kerksis as #257.
