Since the Plains Indian Wars, American Cavalry units have been identified by their Stetsons and Spurs. As horses “evolved” to tanks and helicopters, the Cavalry did not relinquish its distinctive traditions. These reproduction models are a distinctive and accurate representation of the Troopers who came before us.
These are a beautiful replica of the Model 1911 spurs, the last spurs issued to U.S. Army Horse Cavalry Troopers. It is a streamlined, extremely durable forged spur without a rowel. These spurs come as a left and right, with a captive strap buckle on each. The Army Model 1912 Cavalry Equipments Manual identifies the wear of this spur as "being placed on the shoe well up toward the upper part of the counter, buckle on outside of foot." Officers were authorized to wear these spurs with spur chains instead of straps under the heel. We will be getting those soon! Crafted from solid white brass, just like the originals, with hefty russet leather straps and brass buckles attached for an authentic look. 1-1/2'' shank. Be advised, the white brass is slightly lighter than standard brass, but still maintains a brass appearance.
