I purchased this set of spurs at an estate sale recently. I got to speak with the elderly gentleman who owned these. I asked about their age and he didn't know for sure but said they're probably older than you are. I told him that I am over a half century old and he said that would probably be about right. So, I'm guessing that means they should be from the 1950's.
I had to research cowboy spurs to be able to describe these. They are one solid piece of metal (until you get to the rowel). They are considered Swan Neck Spurs. The rowel is 8 pointed, although they're more rounded on the spokes than they are pointed. From the open part, to the back of the yoke is 3.25 inches. The inside diameter, measuring at the area where the buttons are is just under 3 inches across. I do not know what type of metal they are made from. I touched a magnet to all parts, but it did not stick, not even on the rowels. They are silver in color, but do have some patina built up. I see no brand name or other identifying marks.
Shipping will be via USPS Mail from Nevada. The shipping charge is $6.75.
SPECIAL NOTE about possible partial REFUND of some shipping charges:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and a package cost the same amount regardless of where it was being shipped to in the United States. This year they went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. Now it is not possible to state a shipping cost and have it be valid regardless if the package is traveling 2 miles or all the way to the east coast. This latest increase has added an additional .46 cents to up to $1.43 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap and on top of that, this year Paypal started charging a currency conversion fee of 4.4%. International shipping now depends on the destination country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
