    About this item

    1870's-1880's US Cavalry Indian Scouts Helmet Plate and Side Buttons

    Stamped metal standard issue Army Helmet Plate with silver crossed arrows applied to the centre denoting the Scouts.

    In very good condition the Helmet Plate still has the three attachment loops to the reverse whilst the Side Buttons which adorn the black band which sits between the brim and the dome of the Helmet, are complete with their fixing prongs.

    The regulation 1881 Helmet shown is of course not included but nicely displays a Helmet Plate in place  

    In the Indian wars following the U.S. Civil War, the Indian scouts were a fast-moving, aggressive, and knowledgeable asset to the U.S. army. They often proved to be immune to army notions of discipline and demeanour, but they proved expert in traversing the vast distances of the American West and providing intelligence.
