Beautiful Silver Plated Copper Eagle & Unity Is Strength 1820's Hat Plate

Beautiful large spread wing eagle with lightning bolts and laurel branch hat plate. The top of the plate has sunrays and thirteen 5-point stars above UNITY IS STRENGTH. Below the eagle is a shield with the date 1776. This is one of the more beautiful late federal period military shako or hat plates. The reverse has four soldier spots without the attachments on the sides and a silver attachment hook sweated onto the middle of the top. It measures app. 3 3/4" wide x 4 3/4" tall. The plate reminds me of the heat miser, who is awesome! $635
