while washer is just .5 inches in diameter. Both pieces have an old
patina that looks excavated, but I'm not positive. It could be lightly
cleaned and used with an M1885 headstall if needed. Nice

Nice Non Dug Post Civil War Military Style Brass Spur
Here is a Nice Post Civil War Brass “Military Style” Spur ! It’s a non-dug example with a nice patina to the brass, and iron or steel rowel still intact. The points of the rowel are very flat, either from wear or perhaps made that way, but rowel still spins freely. Inside of the strap slots are rounded on the ends, and there is a number “11” stamped on the inside of one. The spur is similar to MS4 in Howard Crouches book, Historic American Spurs. A Nice Post War Military Style Brass Spur !
