DescriptionSix Spurs: Various Designs.
Nice group of spurs including a blued steel spur with unusual half-moon strap slots made by adding round covers to the ends of the arms. The second spur is a fancy Mexican or South American "German silver" spur, which is a copper-nickel-zinc alloy. The third spur is a trouser spur. The fourth example is a US-2a (model 1859) variant. Has an unusually large rowel which appears original to the spur. The fifth spur is a large fancy English buckle spur stamped "White Woolwich". They were based in South London, making spurs in the early 1700's. The spur is a substantial 6.75" long. Lastly, a private purchase spur with a small hole in the neck to nail into the heel. The wide neck adds strength, and appears to have the original leather. From the Bob Baird Collection.
