    Description

    Magnificent and Ultra-Rare Civil War Ohio State Seal Circular Breastplate. Approximately 2.5" (64mm) in diameter. A beautifully struck brass plate bearing the state seal of Ohio. The reverse of the plate retains both correct brass mounting loops and all the lead backing. This is a truly stunning example with only a few shallow dents along the rim and with only trivial wear. This would be a beautiful centerpiece to any serious Civil War collection and is very likely an example that can't be upgraded.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
