Z1318 Federal Regulation 1839 Pattern Cartridge Box Plate (Rare Brass Looped Variant)
Description: Here is one that you just don't see every day. They are rare to dig and even rarer to find in non excavated condition. This is the version with the rare large brass attachment loops. This one has a beautiful face, and the back retains all of the solder. Both large brass loops are still intact and slightly bent towards the center of the plate. There are small scratches on both loops where someone tested the loops to see if they were iron. I have sold a lot of rare maker marked plates, and I can tell you, this is a rare variant!
Measures: 57mm x 89mm
