Z5475 Model 1859 Artillery Curb Bit (First Pattern)
Description: Top shelf excavated Model 1859 first pattern Artillery curb bit. This bit was cleaned via electrolysis years ago and remains in stable condition with great eye appeal. This one still retains most of the brass veneer on both cheek pieces and there is still some brass veneer on the upper rein rings. The original brass lower bar is still in place and slightly bent. The curb chain is still attached, and the links move freely. You would be hard pressed to upgrade this excavated example. This would make a great addition to any Civil War Artillery Display!
Measures: L 8.25’ W 5.5”
Recovered: Selma, Alabama
Reference: "Bridle Bits of the American Military 1776-1954” Pgs. 37-38
