    I just looked it up....It is actually a militia waist belt plate ca. 1818-1835 (see plate 160 of American Military Belt Plates by O'Donnell and Campbell)

    If you look closely at that designs mine is the 1810 version the ones made after that had a different look different especially noticeable in the feathers on the neck of the eagle. At least that's what I was told back then.

    I must say 1830 does fit in with the flask that I found but that was military issue not militia. I am definitely interested in learning more about my plate. I was told that there was one version made only in 1810 if anyone knows anything about that please post up.

    You have to scroll down a long way it shows a repo and then under that it shows the original that was used to make the master die for the reproductions supposedly 1810 version. http://www.hanoverbrass.com/early-mi...nd-plates.html

    I tried a little aluminum jelly on it and it came out great LOL yeah right. Here is one I found on an auction website it was labeled 1818. If mine came out of the ground like this you would never have seen it cuz I would still be laying there dead clutching in my hand.

    Here's a comparison of the two types one on the left is mine and the one on the right was dug by Vermont pack rat. Clearly there is a lot of difference in the detail. One of them is the 1810 and one of them is the newer version that went on until 1835 or whatever. I was told mine was the 1810 but I would love to have some confirmation either way

    Here is the reference book and page with the pic of your plate. The 3rd edition of this book was published in January 2010. The Remarks state that it was long thought that this pattern denoted Light Artillery, but proof is lacking. They are now calling it a militia plate. The "Star of Stars" is the key feature and as we have seen there are several variations of it.

    Thanks Steve. That's an awesome book you have there. That timeline fits in better with some of the other relics found at the site

    Yes, my reference library may be worth more than my collection.
