This excavated carbine sling swivel with snap hook is in very good condition and was recovered from Culpeper County, VA. These devices hung from a leather sling used by cavalry troopers to not only carry their carbine but to also have it close at hand. In the additional images is a complete carbine sling belt which includes its buckle, belt end tip (batwing), and sling swivel with snap hook. The iron is rusty, with moderate flaking, but is still solid. The snap hook and bottom portion of the oval ring are fused together while the eye screw and upper portion of the oval moves freely. It measures approximately 8 inches in overall length and its belt opening width would measure approximately 2-1/2 inches. Another excavated example can be found in Howard Crouch's book "Civil War Artifacts" on page 193, item #2. This carbine sling swivel with snap hook has no repairs and will display very nicely with any excavated carbine buckle. It will also be an excellent addition to any Civil War cavalry or general relic collection.
