Z5898 Confederate "Mississippi” Style Spur
Description: Decent Confederate spur that was once called the "Mississippi” style spur. Recoveries of this spur are mainly found in the East, and it’s now thought these could be a product of Virginia. This spur is in decent shape, but the end of the rowel has broken off. This seems like a very common issue with this pattern. The rowel end is quite large and tends to break off due to heavy usage. The provenance that came with this piece is that it was recovered from the Roulette Farm prior to the National Park Service buying the land. I did see photos of other recoveries and everything else lines up with what should be there. However, this style of spur doesn’t necessarily show up in Cavalry sites dating to late 1862. Based on what I have seen, this style begins to show up in our area in 1863-1864 dated sites. Perhaps it was lost at a later date in the war?
Measures: 3” x 4”
Recovered: Roulette Farm, Sharpsburg, Maryland
