    civil war belt plates or something else?

    Went to a new permission to today for about and hour just to see whats going on there...Its a bed and breakfast. .11acres..The inn was built in 1760s..2nd family since it was built. ..Anyway was just roaming around this field and I got this hit that said it was 6inch down. ..Dug down and it was more like 10...New it was going to be big... this is what I saw.
    I could not believe it....I was over the moon
    So I slowed down and about 50 feet from there I found this...thought it was the other half but I was wrong...Its the eagle. ..Now I dont know why these would be there...If they are civil war. .I know there was training camps in the area...
    Any help with I'd would be great....
    I do know there was fighting going on in the revolutionary war...BUT I DONT THINK SO.....Thanks in advance. ..

    I'm no expert but it looks pre civil war to me. I'll let the experts determine that. Either way its an amazing find and something I've never seen before.

    George... It sounds like they may be authentic from DigIron2's post! I had no clue. By the way, NCO means Non-Commissioned Officer or in other words a Sergeant.

    That is a Waist Belt Plate, 1832 Pattern, Artillery Enlisted, 1832-1839. See page 165 of Michael O'Donnell's "American Military Belt Plates". These two pieces go together, they are not from separate buckles.

    That is one heck of a find!!

    Check this link out....Not quite the same buckle but it shows the complete belt... Shiloh Civil War Relics*Catalog




    I'd go back and pound the area! If the complete buckle was there, the sword could be nearby.....
