Quick Overview

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 modern variant of the Model 1885 spurs issued to U.S. Army Horse Cavalry Troopers. Crafted from stainless steel with a nickel finish, these spurs come with a coarse spinning rowel, indicative of the enlisted originals, with hefty 5/8" black leather straps for an authentic look. Suitable for engraving!

The model 1885 spurs were originally issued in solid brass. These were a huge improvement over their predecessor, the Pattern 1872 spur, which had a much weaker neck and was prone to damage.  One small difference between the officer and enlisted spur was the spinning rowel.  The enlisted rowels were rough and contained fewer teeth (about 12) than the fine-roweled officer spurs (approx 20 teeth).  The 1885 spurs saw much use during the Spanish-American War and into the new century until another design improvement introduced the Cavalry to the Pattern 1903 Spur.
