Purely by coincidence we dug 3 Rev War officer buttons but there's not even hope in that because there's no way they were wearing plain plates.

    There are similar type military plates but these are a no go.
    It's a "romeo plate"...I got one too!

    PS... for anyone who believes it is a Rev plate mine has a super patina and I would sell it for $500. But if it's a Condederate plate I would need $750. You can choose.

    What if its both and the revolutionary war soldier gave it to the confederate soldier. Now its worth $1,250! That's a deal ! On a serious note does anyone have a picture of these actually still attached to a trunk?

    Buckle Boy is correct it is a trunk plate , no question about it. The oval buckle with center bar is American for the shoulder belt of the "new invented cartridgebox" of 1779.

    Im certainly not an expert but I believe they were still firing musket balls in the revolution. My farm house dates back to mid 1700's and the grounds littered with them.

    I can't comment on the plate, but I will say that the two pieces just above and to the right of the stirrup look like parts from an oil lamp.
