Hello from the Pacific Northwest,
Does anyone have any information they can share on the manufacture of boot or brogan heel plates? How long after the Civil War were these worn on civilian footwear? A lady in our club in Spokane recovered the best looking "brass" heel plate with the shape of a star. If this had been found in Oklahoma or Texas, all of you would have yelled "TEXAS. C.S.A" and would have posted it big and bright on this website.
I know boot and brogan heel plates were manufactured with hearts, spades and other symbols. Just wanted to ask to see if anyone knew more about them.
Best from Spokane,
