PAIR OF CIVIL WAR ENLISTED MAN’S BOOTS

$550.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1179-261

Pair of shin-high leather boots with pegged soles and heels in very nice used condition.

The body of the boot is made of three pieces. The front piece runs from the square toe to the ankle and then up to the top of the shin guard. This front piece meas. approx. 18.50 inches long.

The second piece makes up the back of the boot and runs from the top of the heel upward 13.50 inches and stops in an area that would correspond to the top back of the calf. This back piece is sewn to the front along both sides. Because of the integral shin guard, the front is taller than the back.

The third piece is a re-enforcement to the heel section. This piece runs along the top of the heel from seam to seam and rises approx. 2.00 inches.

The shin guards are made from two pieces of leather sewn together.

Both boots have leather pulls near the top. The leather is in very nice condition. The boots do show creases from wear. On one boot there is a small seam separation at the inside ankle.

Instead of heel or toe plates the maker used square-head tacks.

These would be an excellent addition to any general Civil War collection or one that focuses on the enlisted man and his equipment.  [ad] [ph:L]
