Infantry shako plate c. 1850s


Recommended Posts


I just picked up this large hat badge and would like to find out more. The gentleman told me that it was from a great Uncle and he supposedly was a Zouave.

He stated that the family had his uniform for a long time, he remembers seeing it as a child but it was thrown away years ago by a family member.

Any help on a ID of this is appreciated. By the way, I bought the item not the story.......

Looks like an Infantry shako plate, probably from the 1850's or so.
