Confederate "Brandy" Spur Portion

SOLD

This excavated Confederate "Brandy" spur portion is named such due to the volume of this style spur recovered from the Brandy Station, VA area. Its surface has a very pleasing overall green-brown patina that has been lightly clear coated. The strap plates, along with a section of both arms, and its rowel, are missing. The condition in the area of breaks indicate that this damage occurred due to some major force and not by cutting. The area of the break is jagged, and the patina matches the rest of the spur's surface. It measures approximately 2-3/4 inches wide and 2-7/8 inches long.  Its recovery location is unknown. There are no repairs.

See the above pages in the additional images. 

According to "Historic American Spurs" by Howard Crouch, page 51, these spurs "appeared mid-war and was undoubtedly the product of a large Richmond area production facility." The example offered in this listing will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War spur, Cavalry, or general relic collection.
