This is the 1887 sling with one length of leather, with double brass claw hook, and stud.
The new pattern 1887 sling was made with one length of leather, and had a double brass claw hook, and a brass stud on the other end, replacing the old pattern with a standing loop.
This slings shows good service, but is still in good condition, with some dryness to leather’s underside. The surface finish is crackled, and light chipping mostly along the edge. Dark brown color mixing with the lighter russet brown. Has both of its original sliding loops.
Great for display.
