    Original Confederate CSA Belt Plate. "Virginia Style" C.S.A. rectangle belt plate, 70mm x 47mm, sand cast brass. This precursor to the more common Atlanta Arsenal plate retains some faint file markings from manufacture and enjoys casting flaws given crude wartime production techniques in the Confederacy. The "A" is joined to the period after the "S" and there is an uneven right border as made. Such imperfections are highly desirable to Confederate collectors. The plate retains all three hooks on the back. One of these has a substantial amount of casting debris on its underside. The plate was found in Tennessee in 1970 and has been cleaned. With a letter of provenance and authenticity from relic authority Larry Hicklen.
