    Hey. When i was skimming through my copy of Sydney C. Kerksis book, "Plates and Buckles of the American Military 1795-1874", looking for Stefs plate last night, i thought i remembered seeing your plate in the book.
    Curiousity got the best of me this evening, so i though i would go back and look at it again.
    The pic with the belt says, "Three early militia plates on their original belts". So the belt pictured should be what yours would have looked like.
    Note the date Sydney gives this plate. I think your plate could be earlier than 1820's, and could possibly have been used in the War of 1812.
    I love the design on your plate, and if its War of 1812 era, that makes it even better.
    I dont know much about Kerksis, but i will say the book is 500+ pages full of info and illustrations, put together very well, and copyrighted in 1974.

    So... Do you like apples?

    Hey man thanks for the kind words. It's been a good stretch of luck, and I believe that's mostly what it is - luck. Just rare items, at the right place, at the right time.

    Cheers bud

    Thanks for the information. There's a lot of debate about the exact age of items from this era. I know some earlier sources from the 70's have been corrected after more info and finds appeared, but have no idea if that applies to this plate. I appreciate the research and those pictures are excellent!
