Item: Federal Artillery "Bullseye" Bridle Rosette
Construction: Stamped sheet brass with solder fill and brass wire loop.
Approximate size: 1-3/4 inch diameter.
Condition: Very good, excavated, attachment device missing. Brass front has a brown patina with no cracks or breaks. The rim is complete and the rear has a pebbled layer of stable solder. Its attachment loop is missing. There is printing the center rear that is difficult to make out but I believe I see "PAUL / ES (or) E5,O / JU_ / 1992" but I am not completely sure. This may represent the area of recovery and date or something else completely. Younger eyes might be able to figure this one out.
Reference: Examples of similar excavated artillery "bullseye" bridle rosettes are found in the following relic reference books:
See above pages in additional images.
Comments: This rosette was acquired directly from the digger's family. The digger hunted Civil War trails, campsites, and battle sites throughout central Virginia and adjacent states for several decades. This fine relic will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War cavalry or general relic collection.
