War of 1812 US Infantry Shako Plate. 1815 - 1820. Silvered brass. Recently acquired from a 50 year old collection in Western NY. Measures 5 1/4 inches (133.35 mm) x 4 inches ( 101.6 mm). Missing hardware for fastening to the leather Shako. Metal clip was added to top of the plate for hanging. This was definitely added to display the piece by the original owner. It is soldered on, so it can be removed. Leaving as found. This is a rare intact plate seldom encountered on the market today. Don't miss this one.
