Click on an image to enlarge

This is a nice piece that was found several years back. It is an original Civil War cavalry horse martingale. These went on the breast strap on the hose for ornamentation. They are made in the same style as a Civil War belt buckle with the stamped brass face and lead filled back. This is the unmarked style that was so popular with the cavalrymen of the Civil War. What is special about this one is that it has absolutely no repair at all. The back of the plate has most of the original lead present and you can see the outline of where the iron attachments were at one time. This plate has the ink notation on the back that states it was found at Potomac Creek and "79" for 1979. According tot he internet, Potomac Creek is a 16.7-mile-long tidal tributary of the Potomac River in King George and Stafford counties, Virginia. Potomac Creek's source lies between the communities of Glendie and Paynes Corner in Stafford County. It empties into the Potomac River at Marlboro Point. This is a nice excavated Civil War cavalry martingale.
