This excavated brass mount and iron ring is part of a Confederate sword scabbard. While the brass mount was affixed to the scabbard, the dangling iron ring connected the sword to the sword belt rig which allowed the sword and scabbard to be suspended from the soldier's waist. The brass ring portion is in very good condition and now has a pleasing dusty brown patina. The iron ring is now fixed in place due to ground action. It is moderately eroded from the effects of oxidation but is complete.
An example of a similar excavated brass mount and iron ring, on a Confederate scabbard, is found in the following relic reference book:

- exterior length: 56.20 mm. (overall brass ring only)
- exterior diameter: 35.63 mm. (varies due to oxidation)
- interior diameter: 25.28 mm. (varies due to oxidation)
This Confederate scabbard mount was recovered in the area of Brandy Station, VA. There are no repairs and it will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War sword or general relic collection.
