RELIC CONFEDERATE RICHMOND PATTERN RAKING SPUR

$325.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-6766

This raking spur has the simple, wide, flat side bars and flat rectangular neck you look for in a Richmond spur as first identified by Albaugh in Confederate Arms. This is a variation using a horizontal rowel, usually termed a raking spur, supposed by some to allow the spur to still do its job, but roll along the horse’s side rather than digging into it as a conventionally mounted vertical rowel might do. It also uses simple flat studs on the side straps rather than slots for the spur straps. Crouch’s early study of spurs suggested raking spurs might originate in the Maryland-Virginia area, but enough have shown up in other theatres to suggest much wider use. Even Crouch notes that a raking spur he illustrates was recovered in a Virginia camp, but one occupied by Texans. This is a very good example, with brown patina to the brass, but smooth metal and all the points in place on the iron rowel, if slightly rounded.  [SR][PH:L]
