Z4432 1874 Palmer Infantry Brace Yoke (Watervliet Arsenal Produced)
Description: Here is a pretty nice infantry piece from the 1870's. This is the Palmer Infantry Brace that attached to the Model 1874 belt. This was meant to place some of the weight of the equipment on the shoulders and back rather than the waist alone. The 1874 belt would have held two McKeever cartridge boxes and a bayonet. The two rear straps would have held the haversack and clothing bag. This example is very nice. The leather has some crazing but nothing like the ones I have seen. The leather is supple and the inspector's marking is clear. This would be a great addition to any Indian War collection and would look great holding the belt and cartridge boxes.
