    1816-1825 Pattern NEW YORK MILITIA EAGLE BELT PLATE but not in the book? HELP!

    What a way to end the day! 11 degrees when I got to the 2 cellars on private property I received permission to hunt. went there in the fall and the 1st site was and still is overgrown with vines and briars. 2nd site gave up some buttons and a knee buckle last time. decided to go back to both sites today. the clear site gave up a cool cast brass little buckle a few buttons,broken shoe buckle pieces and a cast brass face thing?
    headed back to the overgrown site on way back to car with a 1/2 hour left of daylight and fought my way around the cellar. got a clad qtr a cool little buckle with a guy and his dog. and last signal i thought was gonna be a copper. Dug down and out pops a New York Militia Eagle belt plate. Amazing to see that come out of the ground! I had a friend look in the American Military Belt Plate book It's not in that one or any military belt plate book.
    Can anyone help me with this? Is it a rare buckle?

    That is a beautiful plate in amazing condition. Was it the Sydney kerksis book? If not I will check mine later tonight. It definitely has the New York militia look with the eagle and globe.

    thanks! It's not in any books so far. O'donnell & Campbell book and Sydney Kerksis book, it's not listed.
