Z1199     Model 1859 Cavalry Curb Bit (Field Modified)

Description: Here is an interesting Cavalry curb bit. This is your typical M59 bit missing both of the bit bosses. This example has a very low port. The most interesting thing about this one is the field modification. One of the cheek pieces broke off and was modified with a broken part of another bit. A new cheek piece was hand forged and attached with two rose head nails. This piece is slightly out of square due to having a handmade piece attached but obviously served its purpose. This is a great example of field ingenuity! Based on the look of the metal this was an early pickup or barn find and it's been cleaned and coated.

Measures: 6" x 8.5"

Recovered: Unknown

Price: $95.00

Z1094   Section of a Patented Two Part Spur

Description: Here is a very interesting spur. This one would have originally been made up of two parts. This piece would have been tacked into the back of a boot heel. The neck and rowel portion would have slipped down into the back of this piece and locked in place. This one is a little wavy but still retains it's original shape. The inside is stamped "211" and the patent information is on the inside. This particular variant is a little different from the one listed in in Crouch's spur book!

Z1079     Excavated Model 1833 Brass Stirrup for the Grimsley Artillery Driver's Saddle

Description: Here is a very nice brass stirrup for the Grimsley artillery saddle. This one has the opening of 1.5" which is thought to be for the artillery saddle rather than the Dragoon saddle with a 1.35" opening. This one is in very nice condition! The tread is stippled and unbent. Most excavated examples I have seen have bent treads from heavy use. This particular stirrup was in use as you can clearly see wear on certain parts if you look closely. This would make a great addition to any Cavalry or Artillery collection!

Measures: 5" x 6.25"

Recovered: Unknown

Price: $175.00
