Description  US M1881 EMís Staff Frontplate
Price $ 125.00

Original M1881 Staff frontplate for the enlisted fulldress helmet in unissued condition. This example has never been polished since its manufacture, and lacks the usual overlay piercings in the federal shield. All three brass wire affixing loops are present, though two are a little bit loose. These frontplates are required to build any of the Staff Corps (Hospital, Ordnance, Quartermaster, etc.) helmets, as well as a couple of the combat arms types, including Indian Scouts and Signal Corps. They are also the scarcest of the M1881 enlisted frontplates, and this is a fine example.
