    Woohoo, a plate!!

    Managed to dig this little plate out of the dirt yesterday but at first, has hard to make out what it was. After a bit of cleaning and polish, this is what shined through...

    British War of 1812 era drummer back shako plate!!! Was worn on the back of the drummer boys cap so the men behind him could tell who he was. It measures about 1 1/4" x 1 3/4" in size. Little less then a foot away, was a musketball and a bit of pottery. Can't wait to go back when a little more time and search a bit bigger area and see if anything else is hiding there!!

    Re: Woohoo, a plate!!

    Thanks all and was surprise digging it as kinda out of the way places. As for rarity or value, I am not sure on both counts but would believe since very few drummers, can't be to many out there. Value to know would be nice but just another piece for my collection

    IH - Thanks dude and I haven't seen one before till now while looking on the net to see 100% on what it was. Still haven't found a exact picture of one there but still looking!!
