Pair of Dug Cartridge Box Plates - Dug Vicksburg, MS
Item #: FDR22-099
Here are a pair of cartridge box plates dug in the same area in Vicksburg, MS. Both have the same deep chocolate patina. The boxplate shows the typical ground action on the brass face and on the reverse. The iron loops have eroded away.
The breastplate is the better of the two. A couple freeze cracks noted along the edge of the plate. The lead on the reverse has some ground action noted with only the remnants of the loops present.
