Perfect CS Rope Border Belt Plate
Item #: OS-6701


The Confederate waist belt pictured here is known as a "Rope Border” because of the twisted rope design encircling its inner border. The plate was manufactured by die stamping the pattern into a thin sheet of brass, then trimming the scrap brass left around the border by hand with shears. Three hooks were then cut out of the remaining scrap, which were then soldered in place.

This style of plate was issued to Confederate infantrymen serving in the Western theatre.

This none excavated Rope Border plate has a beautiful patina on the face and very visible striations on the reverse. The plate is perfect.
