    Pre Civil War US baby plate with soldiers initials carved in back, scarcer lettering

    Got out today to a new permission. not a ton of finds but a couple quality ones. a nice Pre Civil War US baby plate with soldiers initials carved in back, a KG II copper and a few other finds. Stoked to have dug my 2nd baby plate. this one has thinner lettering than my 1st one.

    They mainly come in 2 sizes. The larger ones are more common. Gary

    Congrats on your US CW Baby Plate find!
    Great to see you out there already swinging Dave, the ground is still frozen in my area.

    Hope you have a great year buddy,

    Pretty sure all the pre Civil War plates were smaller in the 1830's-40's. Then towards the war they increased in size
