    Revolutionary War Plate?

    Here's a plate I found today in west central Mississippi. I posted it up on "What Is It" and was told that it MIGHT be a Revolutionary War plate?? Can anyone help me with this? It measures 2 inches x 1.5 inches and has a soldered back.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks...I sent pictures to a friend in Charleston, SC who knows Revolutionary Periods accoutrements and I'm hoping he can help too.

    Looks like it's going to be a militia plate..19th century. Probably just prior to civil war. I guess the attachment hook was field soldered and it came off which is why it was lost.

    Maybe I'm wrong but I'm not convinced it's a plate. The plain Rev. War ones I have seen have clipped corners. This seems to have rounded or more square corners. Just my opinion.
    Stand up for what's right, even if your standing alone.

    Thanks for your comment.
    I'm no expert but I had another relic tell me the same thing, that's why I don't think it's revolutionary war.
