WELCOME TO THE NEW AND IMPROVED OLD REBELLION WAR RELICS
Highly sought after early dug oval U.S. boxplate, in beautiful excavated condition, never been cleaned, and showing that great early patina these plates exhibit. Crisp nice US on front. With the back having all its lead backing and both attachment hooks. This plate was dug by non other than Mr. Beverly DuBose in Dec of 1955 in the area of Pickett's Mill Georgia. And so labeled on the back by him. Mr DuBose was one of the very first relic hunters to use a metal detector, which then were WWII mine detectors. He amassed one of the largest collections of Civil War relics and most reside now in the Atlanta Historical Society. An excellent piece of civil war history and his items are rarely seen. This piece was once part of the collection of Mike Miner. Also includes photo of him detecting .
