This non-excavated bridle rosette with its raised intertwined letters "USA" is in outstanding condition. Its brass face has a very nice dull brass patina and is without any cracks or breaks. The rear has its brass attachment loop and a complete complement of solder. The rosette is perfectly round, has no bends or repairs. An excavated example of this style rosette is illustrated in the Civil War relic reference book "Civil War Artifacts" by Howard Crouch on page 133, item # 1. According to Crouch, there is some indication that these rosettes saw artillery usage. Another excavated example can be found in "Excavated Artifacts From Battlefields and Campsites of The Civil War" by Stanley S. Phillip on page 86 as item 8 This relic will be an excellent addition to any Civil War cavalry or general relic collection.
