Truly an item for the discriminating collector / historian who demands highest quality with regard to originality and condition, this rarely seen mounted artillery driverís saddle tree remains in all original, un-issued condition yet offers the eye appeal and satisfaction of unquestionable age and originality. The attractive cream rawhide cover remains in exceptional condition sporting the original bold inspectorís marking of P. V. HAGNER / LT. COL. ORD. ( Lt. Col.Peter Valentine Hagner became supervisor of the Watervliet Arsenal, one of the main points of supply for artillery gear to the Union army, in 1863.) A West Point graduate in 1836 Hagner would attain the rank of Bvt. Brig-General before the warís closing. This impressive Grimsley pattern saddle tree bears the original brass maker's tag of E. Waters of Troy, N.Y. Waters supplied saddle trees under government contract, which would be shipped to the Waterviliet Arsenal where they were finished with the addition of stirrup straps, stirrups, &c. This offering is a rare example of the Waters contract work just as it would have appeared at the Arsenal after inspection and approval marking, ready for finishing additions. An outstanding display item for the Civil War Mounted Artillery collector or horse equipment enthusiast, this is only the 2nd of such that we have seen in nearly fifty years of seeking out such things.

* Civil War mounted or light artillery rigs required special saddles for the harnessing of six horses to draw the guns, limbers, and caissons. Grimsley pattern saddles were utilized for drivers with a driver required for each pair of horses on the gun team. Drivers were mounted on the left controlling his mount and the horse on his right.

Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
