Location Recovered: Camps between Mobile and Dauphin Island, AL

Description:The Eagle Breast Plate is a popular relic among collectors with the artful Eagle and the talons holding arrows. This plate is decent. The face has a distinct eagle relief and a relatively dark patina. It still has the dirt and crust on it from being dug and with some TLC could be a nice face. Probably some work with a tooth pick to remove the crud would make the stamping really stand out. The face is relatively flat with just a few very slight waves in it. The back has lead in it but it is thin. The wires loops are rusted away as most are especially when recovered near salt water. This is a good plate for the money and displays well.
