Default First hunt of 2014 finds a spur!

Got out a few weeks ago to a new site I thought may have had some CW activity. My hunting buddy MoBob and I had a good day. Very muddy that day so only hunted a small area. Now if this snow ever leaves we need to spend some time there! In addition to the spur I found a fired round ball and Bob found several fired round balls, a fired Minnie and an IH penny.

Congrats on a cool spur although I don't believe that it's a civil war spur. A neat find either way congrats

Thanks to all for the replies. Anyone else got an idea if the spur is CW? I think it looks very similar to the Leech & Rigdon CS marked spur, but no CS on mine. Also, looks like some shown in Crouch's book, that he labels as Confederate

I was gonna say it looks CS to me. You can usually tell by the square or rounded ends. Yours looks more square, which makes me think confederate. I'm not a spur expert. I've just found a whole one, most of one, and a few pieces here and there. Awesome find whatever it turns out to be.

The strap end makes me think Federal Enlisted, but the rowel end is different. Not sure, but it is a super find!

Great find, Chip. She's a real beauty

Not sure on the ID. I found a similar spur here in 2012 (not exactly the same) that was attributed to the CS, but was also told it was a civilian issue.

Cya soon,

Jeff
