Found at a local Gettysburg estate, this item is a fine, original, civilian model horse curb bit in very good overall condition. The bit comes from a local farm located off the Taneytown Road in Gettysburg. The iron surface of this equestrian artifact bears a surface of light rust pitting that has acquired a dark reddish coloring overall. The design of the bit, with its 7¾" long side branches (a.k.a. cheek pieces), makes a pronounced 'half step' in each branch midway between the bosses down to the piece's vertical rein slot. Bit exhibits a straight slobber bar. No brass 'bosses' on the side branches, nor does it retain a curb chain and chinstrap. Specimen exhibits a tight and strong, 6" long port bar mouthpiece with no arch. This strong curb bit, which bears no visible markings or stampings, is good, original example of civilian horse gear and would complement any equestrian collection.  [ra] [ph:L]
