    Pistol Butt plate

    A first for me, I've found a few rifle plates before but never one of these. Looks like a British Sea Service pistol plate?

    Yeah, I'm really thrilled with it! Is there a way of getting a rough idea of a date for these?

    I agree on the time frame. Certainly c.1800-1820 time frame. GREAT find! I dug my first pistol butt plate a couple years ago.

    Congrats!

    Cool! Wonder if it ever struck someone over the head, those old single shot pistols were often turned into clubs after the shot was fired.
