Z1712 Regulation 1841 Pattern Carbine Sling Swivel (Triple Marked)
Description: Here is a very nice carbine sling swivel that is fully functional. This one is triple marked dating it to 1864 production. It is marked by the manufacturer "E.Gaylord / Chicopee Mass," the inspector "T.J.Shephard," and "US." This would have been used in combination with the triple marked carbine sling buckles produced in 1864. I see a lot of O.B. North manufactured sling swivels but this stamped version is a little tougher to find.
Measures: 3" x 9"
Recovered: Surplus Stocks
