A very nice example of the Indian War-era Cavalry shoulder sling designed for use with weapons fitted with sling rings; essentially a slimmed-down version of the Civil War carbine sling. The sling was to be worn over the left shoulder with its buckle to the back.

This specimen is constructed of a bridle leather belt measuring 1 3/8” wide by approximately 58” in overall length with hardware of a steel swivel and snap-hook device used to attach it to the carbine ring. Also present is a square brass adjustment buckle and small brass sling end tip. The buckle is sewn in place with three lines of stitching. The leather strap is faintly stamped with an arsenal marking as well as a “32” rack number and other number/letter stamps.

The sling swivel and hook are in excellent condition with even dark patina. Clearly stamped “ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL”.

The condition of the leather is good and very supple. The metallic parts are clean and in good order.

This is a rare Indian War cavalry accessory in nice condition.  [jet] [ph:L]
