Models 1873 & 1882 Headless Shell Extractors. After a good deal of firing, the breech would become foul, (or Verdigris build up from cartridges remaining in the leather belt loops. and sometimes the extractor would cut through the head of the cartridge, leaving the weapon unserviceable until the shell was removed.  Without the extractor, a pocket knife was usually employed in the field. Either way, put a soldier in danger, as removing the cartridge still took precious time.

Fine condition on both.

All original.
