Original snap swivels for attaching to the saber hangers.
1902 Era Japanned Saber Snap Swivels. Japanned or brown lacquered swivels for attaching to the leather saber hangers. These were intended to allow the saber to have a quick release, and would also put less stress on the leather.
These 2 swivel snaps are very close in condition, with one having a little less very light surface rust. Will clean up with some oil.
Not so easy to find these days.
Very good – fine condition.
