RARE GAR Cartridge Box Plate
Rare G.A.R. box plate that was made to match a similar belt plate. This has the two mounting loops on the reverse. The plate is cast brass. The monogram of GAR is filled in with black enamel paint for accent.
Refer to : Belt Plates, Belts and Swords of the Grand Army of the Republic by Roussin, pattern 015- Rarity 4
The reference states that the belt plates are rare, so I wonder how much are the cartridge box plates.
Condition is fine with the loss of black enamel being the only significant wear.
