New York's version of the regulation 1839 U S pattern artillery belt plate on the original buff belt. The white buff belt is in nice pliable condition with the John I. Pitman makers mark clearly visible. The belt plate has a nice overall even age patina. Substantial numbers of these were issued to New York Artillerymen between 1840 and 1851 when the regulations changed to the rectangular style belt plate. Written in ink on the out side of the belt is the name W. E. Andrews. My preliminary research did not turn up any potential matches in Civil War records but I am sure additional research in pre war New York military records might find a match.
