This civilian or "gentleman's" brass spur is in very good condition and still retains a portion of iron rowel. The brass has aged into a very pleasing dark green patina and it appears that the entire spur was very lightly clear coated so as to preserve it. On the interior of the spur is nicely printed in white paint "COLD 1972 HARBOR" indicating its location and date of recovery. Cold Harbor was the site of a major Civil War battle where there were over 15,000 casualties. According to Howard Crouch's reference book, "Historic American Spurs", this spur is lightly constructed and most likely intended for a young rider. A similar example of this spur can be found in this book on page 13 as item CV 18. The spur has no cracks breaks, bends, or repairs and will be an excellent addition to any excavated cavalry or general relic collection. Approximately 3 1/4 x 4 1/8 inches.
