    Flying Eagle Cent, 1820s Eagle belt plate [partial],& another half penny

    They have used some heavy equipment [scrapers and bulldozers] to ready a field for development.
    The site is where a farmstead was in 1871.
    I hunted the ground that was left and the dirt that was dragged away.
    I found these and hope to find more when I go back.
    Thanks for looking and best luck.


    Beltplate is fourth from the bottom at this site.

    We find those half Pennies occasionally in WI, only they say 'Bank of Northern Canada' instead of 'Montreal' and most are badly corroded.
    Nice job on the eagle. That is on tough type to dig.

    Re: Flying Eagle Cent, 1820s Eagle belt plate [partial],& another half penny

    Merf,

    Those are some GREAT finds! The odd thing about that plate is that it doesn't appear to be plough damage. The plate appears to be cut--almost as if someone cut it much later to turn their great grandfather's militia plate into a pair of aviator wings for current service.

    I have heard of eagles cut from plates before, but in this case it only appears to have been the wings and shield. It may be that you will find the bottom half of the plate in your next search.

    Great Stuff, my friend. Thank you for sharing these excellent photos with all of us.

    Thanks Upnorth ----The half penny was unredable when I found it.
    The pics are after 1 hour in the rock tumbler.

    Thanks Buckles

    I went back today and found another piece of it.
    It was 95 degrees, muddy, and the bugs were eating me alive so I did not stay long.
    Here is a pic. I tumbled the pieces so they look a little better.

    Best luck my friend

    Merf--the great thing is that this means that the rest of the buckle IS there! You MUST find it if possible.

    What I hadn't considered when I posted before, was that these were the natural stress points in the buckle (where the metal was folded when it was stamped when made). It just looked strange for a second. But the rest of that plate is there in that field.

    Was the other piece close to where you found the first one?


    Regards,
