That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

This grouping consists of a US Eagle Breast Plate and 6 eagle infantry buttons. The breast plate is in very good condition with a nice face showing good relief. There is one small period ding on the top that is shallow. The back has full lead with good white patina. There are no attachment hooks though you can see where the hooks were. The buttons all have the "I" on the shield and all have the shanks. On one of the buttons the back is loose but still in the face and doesn't fall out.

This is a nice little collection from a small hard to get battle.
