RG002 - Cast CSA BeltPlate - S O L D
Absolutely beautiful cast brass rectangular Virginia Style "C.S.A." Beltplate. This
buckle was dug in Hoovers Gap, Bedford County, TN and has a super uncleaned
light green patina. This plate measures 2.78 X 1.91 (70.06 X 48.5 mm) and is perfect with all
three hooks and nice "body curve". This plate comes complete a map and
exact location where the CSA was found. A very desirable plate
in every way for sure.
RG003 - Stamped
Trans-Mississippi Star Device - S O L D
This "Star" brass disk was originally sweated to the tongue
portion of a Tongue and Wreath Sash Buckle
and is closely associated with
Texas plates. The manufacturing
process obviously was not very good as
it's more common to see them apart
rather than a complete tongue. Note the
outer outline of the star is also lined and the background is "stipled"
with the remains of a silver wash. This is a beauty, seldom offered
in this condition and measures 1.17 inches
in diameter. ( 29.8 mm).
It's absolutely perfect and quiet an addition to any collection.
RG004 - United States Cartridge
Box Plate - S O L D
Very Nice Cartridge Box Plate
dug several years in Richmond,
Virginia. Rounded steel loops
on the back are perfect and not
common to be in this good
condition. Note the plate
still has some of the dirt not
removed by the original digger.
RG005 - United States Eagle Plate -
S O L D
Extra Sharp US Eagle Plate.
Both Rounded steel loops are there
however one is "leaning". Dug
in Richmond, Virginia several years
RG008 - Handmade Civil War Soldier
Decorated Disk - $65
Recovered in Confederate camp in
Murfreesboro, Tennessee. May
have been made from a coin but that
is just a guess. Anyway, the
disk has been hammered out with
lines drawn on the face. It's
one of a kind and obviously a
product of boredom. A very
nice piece for those collecting
items of this type. I have
the diggers name for the purchaser.
RG031 - Large Silver Company Letter "A" - S O L D
Excellent large silver company letter "A". Lead filled with
three brass attachment loops. This item is non-dug and perfect. Size
is 1.47 inches (37.41mm) high.
RG032 - 12th Georgia Buttons - $5
Relic hunters always dig shotgun shells and a common reference to
them is "12th Georgia Buttons" Well for anyone who thought they
never existed here they are. While supplies last this "button"
is guaranteed to generate a chuckle from anyone who sees them.
