Click on an image to enlarge
This is an excellent non-excavated Civil War officer pattern cavalry spur. This is very cool and very distinctive style that was worn by the Civil War soldiers and mostly of officer rank. It is made of cast brass and is the pattern with the floral style pattern at the base of the rowel neck going down the legs toward the strap loops. This one has the excellent original iron rowel still present in the neck and it still spins. It has a great looking untouched patina all over with a superb look. This is the exact spur that is pictured on page 85 of the Spur book by Dr. Bob Baird. He states that this one was owned by Quartermaster Frederick M. George who served with the 55th Pennsylvania Infantry during the War. Since he was a quartermaster, he would have been able to acquire such a wonderful spur. The records show that Frederick George enlisted on December 14th 1861 in the 55th Pennsylvania Infantry. He mustered out on December 14th 1864. During that time, he was sent down to South Carolina where it served most of the War. IN April of 1864 they were went to Virginia where they saw action at Swift Creek and Proctor's Creek. Then they fought at Cold Harbor and Petersburg. You will have a hard time finding a better spur than this one and it is attributed to a solder from the Keystone state.
