    Beautiful Heart Heel Plate NH

    My friend and I hit a 1700's cellar hole on a friends property in town. This is the second time we have been there. The first time was a bust. Last week I scouted around a bit and found where they did their gardens and farming across the path from the house. We went back yesterday for a few hours. I hunted what appeared to be a trail where they accessed the field (now all woods). There were the remains of wagon ruts but you really had to look to see them. Anyway I got a fantastic 12gauge shot shell signal and was less than excited to dig it. About 6 inches down came a lovely heart heel plate. I have never found one and only dreamed of beautiful ones they find in Virginia and South. I should have put a quarter next to the photo for size. This one is exactly the diameter of a Morgan silver dollar and only the tips extend beyond it by 1/8". This is a very small one. I wonder if this one was on it's way to the Civil War on the bottom of someone's shoe. Anyways I thought that I would share it with you. I'm a quite pleased with this find 8)

    Nice find Ed. They are pretty much all that size. The heels on the boots were pretty small back then. Congrats...Lance

    Nice find Ed.
    I found one of those too about a year ago. I thought the small size was a bit odd too.
    Congrats,

    I have been told (only seen one dug) they were common during the civil war era (dont know if there issue or not) and have been found at CW battle sights.
    A very cool find.

    Ed, that is an interesting heel plate. For some reason, we don't find artifacts similar to that in our area.

    Great find Ed. I found one like it earlier this year too. I didn't know what it was until I posted it and someone helped with the ID. Is yours silver colored on the other side? Mine has alot of the silver color left on it. I assume that was the side that didn't come in contact with the ground.

    Cool find! Here's one I found back in March:

    I've seen the heart shape before--as well as the clover cut-out...but the star was a new one to me...

    Since these have been found in CW camps before, some folks associate them a little too strongly with the CW. They were not issued to troops, but rather were a civilian item--even though some obviously went into battle on soldiers' boots.

    I love seeing these posted--thank you for putting this one on the forum.
