    Regulation 1874 Pattern Officer's Plate

    In an old section of woods today I came across this belt plate:

    I don't know much about military plates, I was able to find the design and similar items online and there was one found many years ago on TreasureNet

    My eagle buckle. Is it real or not?

    If not a reproduction, dates to the late 19th century. If any of you guys know a way to confirm its authenticity please let me know.

    Thanks for looking, HH,
    Steve

    Excellent find ! I found the same plate, (except mine is stamped Brass) at an old homestead in Oklahoma. Steve in Pa also identified mine as Indian Wars. The one I found, is also my avatar picture.
