Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice pattern 1826 Eagle Breast Plate with lead filled back. These would be attached to the long sling on the cartridge box used with the Springfield rifled musket. Both mounting loops are still attached, though they do have oxidation. The front brass face has very nice details and has aged wonderfully. The reverse side does show oxidation and some deterioration of the lead fill.
This doesn’t look to be a “dug up” example, but it definitely was not stored in the best of conditions for a while, and is possibly a battlefield pickup from after the war. This gives it a lovely patina. Measures approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Ready to display!
