Just for the sake of accuracy this is actually an M1881 Helmet, not Shako, plate. A shako is a very different type of headgear. You will find these plates unofficially used on other types of headgear other than the M1881 US Army Enlisted man Dress Helmet, as the design is very popular to this day (especially with marching bands). The newer made plates are usually screw back, rather than having the soldered affixing wire of the originals.
