Civil War belt plate lead filler relic. State of New York (SNY Plate) This is what remains after salt water has caused separation of the lead filler and the brass belt plate stamping.This unique item was recovered in 1987 from the wreck of the "Governor" off the South Carolina coast near Myrtle Beach. The lead filler measures 54.85 mm wide, 86.40 mm in length, and weighs 3.6 ounces. The tongue and paws are missing of course as is the outer brass plate, but the filler is a crisp duplicate of the brass stamping as the molten lead was poured into the brass plate and the puppy paws and tongue attached.
