    Congrats on an excellent find. I found one about 10 years ago, except mine is stamped brass, (see my avatar). I believe it was Steve in Pa. who identified mine as an Indian Wars belt plate also.

    Your cast plate is thicker and more sturdy, with sturdy attachments. The stamped brass is a thin plate that had weaker attachments on the reverse. The Eagle and obverse design on the front, was literally stamped into the brass. I believe the cast plates also have curvature to them, where as the stamped brass plates were flat.

    Where they used for the same purpose though? I should have bin more specific, are the stamped ones a later or earlier date ?
