An absolutely beautiful two-piece interlocking Virginia State Seal Officer's waist belt plate (50mm X86mm). Heavily gilded brass with the tongue die struck in deep relief. The wreath is composed of laurel leaves and berries with crossed ribands at top and bottom. Certainly the finest example of this scarce plate in existence. There is a "small push" on the tongue portion face at the top right. You can see this push in the auction photo and the listed pictures. The push is harder to see once it is placed in the wreath. I have been told by a reputable source this plate was manufactured by the "Ames Mfg. Co." prior to the Civil War but it is not marked. This plate was purchased at the June 25, 2009 Heritage Civil War Auction. Copy of the auction cover and auction photo of this actual plate is included. Definitely an upgrade example to any Confederate or Virginia State seal collection.
