Ca.-1864 Union cavalry stirrup (brass, model 1859 lightweight type) with replacement rowel made from a silver Spanish colonial bust-type 1 real (late 1700s-early 1800s), found in Fauquier County, Virginia (rare). 75.8 grams; 4-3/4" x 2-1/2". A small, simple stirrup whose main attraction is the replacement rowel (frozen in place), actually the second instance we have seen of using a silver coin for repair, with one end of the stirrup broken off and all patinated dark bronze in color.
