Captain America's Shield is the primary weapon used by Captain America. During World War II, the United States government gave him a triangular shield that was bulletproof. When he reemerged in the 21st Century, he was given a circular shield that was indestructible. Both are meant to be symbols as well as weapons.

Triangular Shield

Cap 1945 UA

The original shield

The original shield was given to Steve Rogers after he went through Operation: Rebirth. It was triangular in shape though it could be thrown with a great deal of accuracy. It had sharp edges and could cut through a great deal. The shield was bulletproof and protected Captain America from small arms fire. However, on the mission to Norway, it was dented by a punch from Nazi supersoldier Herr Kleiser. When Cap rode the nuclear missile he lost the shield.

It was found by the American soldiers and kept in his memory. It eventually found its way to the desk of Bruce Banner, who studied Steve Rogers and Rebirth.

Circular Shield

After Captain America was found to be alive, S.H.I.E.L.D. fashioned a new shield. This one was made from a combination of vibranium and adamantium so that it was completely indestructible. Since it was circular, Cap could throw it and have it return to him on its own.
