    Exceptional Set of Civil War or Earlier Cavalry Officer's Saddle Holsters. Superb overall condition. All leather in very fine supple, sound condition, with absolutely no finish crackling. The body of each holster is 14" long including the heavy decorative screw affixed 2 3/4" brass tips. The covers are edged in yellow leather and attached at the top with a long 1/2" wide strap which is pierced at the bottom to allow them to be attached to buckles on the saddle. Complete removal of this strap would allow the covers to be removed as well. Closure of the covers over the holsters is affected with a long 1" wide leather tab pierced for the brass finial on the holster bodies. Each holster also equipped at the top edge with a 5/8" wide leather strap with iron roller buckle which allows the guns to be held in place inside the holsters. Just some honest wear to the yellow leather edging on the flaps, with a few tiny cracks, very minor and obviously the result of honest use, else overall about perfect. Certainly as nice a set of Civil War officer's saddle holsters as we've ever catalogued and especially desirable for Cavalry.
