This is just a great set of spurs recently found in an old trunk of objects belonging to Charles F. Sherman of the 2nd Massachusetts (Nims Battery) and so marked with an excellent, original ID tag attached to the spurs. They were taken from a Texan in Western Louisiana and worn by Sherman thereafter during the war. They show classic western design with large, spiked rowels with bobs on each side. The leathers are original with the exception of one that has been replaced with period chain. Strap these on and when you walk into your local saloon, you'll sound just like Josey Wales. Pretty good chance you won't look like him though.
