As per 1861 U.S. Army Uniform Regulations, “1500 – For all Mounted Officers-yellow metal, or gilt spurs” were to be worn. Some spurs were privately purchased and could be very plain or ornate with different animal figures such as eagles and horses. These are a great addition to either an officer or cavalry trooper impression which will make you stand out from the standard spurs worn.
Our reproduction spurs are made of solid brass with steel rowels. If purchasing leather straps, we recommend you lightly wet the straps before installing them. This will facilitate ease of movement.
