1885 Pattern Saber Slings
click for an even bigger image



Field-used example of US 1885 saber slings. Brown leather slings with slides and brass buttons on the ends, secured to the belt hook with rivets. The long hook has been bent upwards by the trooper to form a carrying hook for carrying the saber when dismounted.
Good finish to the leather, just a few small flakes and some wrinkling overall from use. Still has a lot of gilding left on the brass despite being issued and used. No markings I can see.
$7.95 shipping. NY addresses add sales tax.
