A Victorian General Officer’s Waist Belt Plate

A Victorian General Officer’s waist belt plate comprising a gilded brass rectangular belt plate and silver (white metal) VR cipher between two oak leaf sprays with the words “Dieu et Mon Droit” in a ribbon below.
This particular pattern of General officers waist belt plate is difficult to date precisely as it was in use from 1837 through to the 1880’s and carried the same cipher during that period.
The reverse has a hook for attaching to the end of the sword belt and two long pins for securing the silver device to the back plate. All in very nice original condition.
