CONFEDERATE SPUR WITH STRAP

$225.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-6767

This Confederate spur retains its original spur strap and buckle, which is very uncommon. The side straps are of medium width and use conventional slots for the spur strap. Instead of arcing up and to the rear in a curve, the rectangular neck is more angular, proceeding up at an angle a short ways before, turning abruptly to the rear. Like the strap, the iron rowel is still in place and in good condition, with all its points.

This pattern is generally considered a western theatre product, but Crouch notes that some with heavy, rounded side bars have been found in the area of W.H.F. Lee’s cavalry screen line along the Rappahannock, dating to Spring 1863. See his plate CS4. He also shows a spur with more graceful curving neck as CS18 that he thinks were a deep south product and associated with Wheeler’s cavalry, and a pair with radically blockier transition of side strap to straight neck as CS19 that he also classifies as western theatre style, but notes were found in the Richmond area. In any case, this is in nice condition, with full rowel, and very scarce with the spur strap still on it.  [SR][PH:L]
