A rare Texas Militia belt plate with the keeper and adjuster as well as part of the original leather belt. Found just a couple of weeks ago in Olathe, Kansas. Have learned that these belt plates date from the time of the Texas Revolution to Texas statehood. Some Texas militia units even wore them in the early part of the Civil War as dug examples have been found in northeastern Oklahoma. (Then Indian Territory). Paid only $39.00 for this historic artifact.
