Fine example of a rectangular cast-brass belt plate, 3" x 2”, U.S. pattern of 1851, depicting an American eagle with outstretched wings, with a pennant bearing the motto “E Pluribus Unum” in its beak, a shield on its breast and arrows and a laurel branch in its talons. The eagle is encircled by a separately applied silver laurel wreath and topped with 13 stars and a sunburst, all on a pebbled background. The reverse is fitted with a ½” wide retaining hook. Unmarked. Shows a dark patina overall, else very good. Accompanied by paperwork attributing the buckle to Signal Corps Captain Gustavus P. Dana, including a modern copy of his officer's commission and a modern copy of a 1914 letter to the publisher of the Washington, D.C. "National Tribune" describing his service.
