Scarce Virginia Excavated Carbine Sling Buckle With Swivel and Snap
Click on an image to enlarge

This is a piece that you don't see excavated that often! It is a very fine original excavated buckle and tip with the snap and roller portion of a Civil War cavalry carbine sling. The leather sling used this buckle to adjust the length of the carbine sling to the size need by the cavalryman. The batwing looking tip went on the end of the sling to protect the end of the leather sling. This tip still has all four of the rivets remaining. This is a nice excavated one with a pretty patina all over. The snap and roller went on the end of the sling and it snapped onto the saddle ring of the carbine. They were used so the cavalryman wouldn't loose his gun while bouncing in the saddle. This one is in good shape for an excavated artifact and even has the roller present on the end. The ink recovery history that is written on the piece is that it was found in the James River, Virginia area. The pieces are mounted on a piece of cardboard for display purposes. Is a great piece to display in you excavated cavalry items display.
