Description  US M1881 Cavalry EMís Frontplate
Price $ 95.00

Original M1881 Cavalry frontplate for the enlisted fulldress plumed helmet in unissued condition. This example has never been polished since its manufacture, and lacks the usual numeral piercings in the federal shield. All three brass wire affixing loops are present and excellent. These frontplates are required to build either the M1881 or M1881/87 Cavalry enlisted helmets, and are one of the scarcer types of Indian Wars insignia. This is a fine example.
