MODEL 1887 CARBINE BOOT- EXCELLENT CONDITION:
This is an excellent example of the Model 1887 Carbine
This boot retains its full form and all of the full
length straps that have no breaks, tears or other
damage. The seam is intact, the boot retains its shape,
and the brass plate is not flattened or out of shape.
The surface of the leather is excellent, with a bright
shiny surface and no crazing, flaking, or loss of
surface finish to the body of the boot or to the
straps. The only mar on the boot is a short scar left
on the upper body strap by the tongue of the buckle.
The front of the boot is legibly stamped “ROCK ISLAND
ARSENAL” and the upper body strap is stamped “D.C.L.”,
the inspector’s initials.
This carbine boot is a top shelf example that will
display very well with your Indian War cavalry
collection. (0801) $395
