It is very rare to find an authentic original WW1 Military full bridle all set up as this one, still just the way that it was when it was being used by the U.S. Cavalry almost 100 years ago. This is not a reproduction, every part of this bridle is authentic - the real deal. The bridle is complete except that there is no nose band.

The bridle has two bits - a snaffle which is attached by two short hanging straps to the little brass pieces that are set halfway down on the cheek-pieces (picture #4). The snaffle is marked "Star Steel Silver Made In New England" there is also the mark of the Buermannstar, the markings are very worn though. I havetried to showthese markings in picture #8. Also in pictue #8 you can see some of the markings on the M1909 style of bit and those markings are "Stainless Steel ...In England Eldonian", but again those markings are very worn as well. Both of the bits are in nice condition, very shiny, withno rust. The 1909 style ofbit measures 5" and the snaffle is about 5 1/4".

The two short little hanging straps that connect the snaffle to the bridle's cheek-pieces are both marked "U.S." and one is shown in the 9th picture. The bridle has two original sets of reinsand each set has brass buckles that match the brassbuckles of the bridle (picture #7).One of the reins is marked with what looks like "Clinton 1917 J.N.S." as shown in the 10th picture. The leather has been cleaned and conditioned with a special product recommended by researchers of antique Military & Cavalry items. The leather is all pliable, but it all shows wear --there is quite a bit of cracking of the leather thru-out the bridle and it's reins. The set of reins that are attached to the 1909 bit are very worn and they are sewn together at the rider's end, there is no buckle thereand there has been a hand sewn repair tomend a break on one as well. I have tried to show the condition of thebridle's leather in some of the close-up pictures. I do not see where there have been any repairs on the headstall of the bridle.

There are also two nice eagle rosettes on the bridle that are in nice condition. The rosettes have some substance to them, they are not thin. They each measure 1 3/4" across.

Great opportunity to get a nice addition to add to someone's display of a WW1 McClellan saddle.

This bridle is being sold "no returns" and I'll be happy to send anyone any additional pictures that they might like, as well as answer any questions.

buyers from the U.S. only please and payment would be appreciated with-in 4 days after the sale ends. Thank-you.
