JUST ADDED ON 8/16 - GETTYSBURG / ROSENSTEEL COLLECTION MUSEUM PIECE - U.S. Puppy Paw Belt Plate with Smith Maker Mark
This U.S. belt plate with puppy hooks and Smith of Brooklyn maker mark on the back was originally part of the Rosensteel Collection and retains a painted museum number on the back. The lead on the back is complete. The plate was apparently painted gold for the 50th Anniversary of the battle and still retains some of this paint. It appears that one edge of the plate was clipped. This plate was originally sold by the Horse Soldier in 2013 and the provenance letter given at that time will be included. I will include my provenance letter as well.
