I found these two yesterday and I'm told the cast on on the right with a belt loop in it is a sword belt plate. The one on the left is like an embossed thin plate of brass. Is it a belt plate of some sort? How old are they? From what army?

Nice plates for sure.

The one on the far right is an Indian wars plate 1874 1875 maybe.

The one on the far left I am not sure. Someone here will know.

Surprised no replies these are great finds.

By the way those are pretty nice plates let me hit that place hard. Both are most likely from Civil War activity

Not sure, I think the left is pre & the right is post CW.
But waiting for the guys with the books.
