This is the improved model of the 1885 carbine boot. It is longer and has a brass reinforced throat base. This carbine boot is in nice service condition. The Rock Island Arsenal stamp is clear and fully visable. The leather condition is very sericeable with no rot or deteriation. The stiching is sound and tight. The straps are intact with no damage or repairs. The body is in great form with no poor storage crushing. The “boot” shows field use and wear but is in very nice condition. This Cavalry boot will show very well for the military collector of Indian Wars artifacts.

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
