I found two crossbelt plates :-)

Sometime ago at auction I came across a locked Georgian celleret which rattled a bit when moved indicating something inside , intrigued I purchased the item , upon unlocking the celleret at home inside was a bunch of items . Pick of the crop was a George III pattern gorget in pristine condition and two crossbelt plates . One to the Morfe Loyal Volunteers and the other to Morfe & Royal Oak Volunteers . Thought I'd share them on here if only to inspire others to never give up dreaming of finding such treasures . 

Cheers Rick

Excellent!  Now you'll have us all cruising the antique shops looking [and listening] for 'rattle-y' boxes!  Lovely condition on what I suspect are two fairly rare belt plates.  In favt, you might want to try and get a valuation and stow them soewhere safe!
