Z1079     Excavated Model 1833 Brass Stirrup for the Grimsley Artillery Driver's Saddle

Description: Here is a very nice brass stirrup for the Grimsley artillery saddle. This one has the opening of 1.5" which is thought to be for the artillery saddle rather than the Dragoon saddle with a 1.35" opening. This one is in very nice condition! The tread is stippled and unbent. Most excavated examples I have seen have bent treads from heavy use. This particular stirrup was in use as you can clearly see wear on certain parts if you look closely. This would make a great addition to any Cavalry or Artillery collection!
