MODEL 1912 HALTER LEAD ROPE – FULL LENGTH IN “LIKE NEW” UNISSUED CONDITION:  One of the scarcer pieces of the famous group of Trial Horse Equipment, this Model 1912 Halter “Tie” or Lead Rope is in like new, unissued condition.  While many of the components of the Model 1912 Horse Equipment were eventually pulled from inventory and sold into surplus, these halter ropes were inherently utilitarian, and continued to be used through the end of the horse cavalry, and then I’m quite sure the soldiers found endless applications for any that were left in inventory at the local posts throughout the army, leaving relative few to survive today in collections.   

This Halter Tie Rope shows no sign of having been issued or used, and is full length.  The hemp rope is still fairly stiff with much of the fibers still rough on the surface like any new rope.  The bronze snap swivel is present and fully functional, the spliced eye in the rope is full form and the whipped bitter end is intact.   

Overall, this is an excellent specimen and could never be upgraded. (0904)  $200
