Indian Wars enlisted CAVALRY DRESS HELMET ACCESSORIES – $195

If you have a dress helmet that is incomplete, then these helmet accessories are your answer. The group consists of the yellow horsehair plume, plume holder, helmet mounting accessories, CAVALRY EAGLE FRONT PLATE, CAVALRY EAGLE BUTTONS and helmet strap. I will not separate these items. I would consider purchasing a helmet that these could be utilized on. Price is 195.00 with free shipping.

CUSTER ERA MODEL 1872 CAVALRY BRUSH AND SHOE POUCH – $205

Rare accessory, as it was only made until 1874 then discontinued. These pommel pocket/bags are in VG overall condition and are complete. The bags were designed to carry the trooper’s necessary items for proper care of his mount; brush, curry comb, 2 horseshoes and 15 nails. The cross straps that join the two bags have been repaired and re-enforced on the back side with small pieces of leather from a Civil War Eagle Buckle belt. The repairs cannot be seen, the straps are complete, and these bags will display perfectly. Mentioned for exactness. Price is 205.00 with free shipping.
