This rarely found battlefield recovered pair of Union issue spurs emanated from the late pioneer Civil War relic collector and authoritative author, Stanley Philips. ( Excavated Artifacts from Battlefields & Campsites of the Civil War Vol. 1 & 2 by Stanley Phillips) Acquired years ago from the respected Phillips as a Battle of the Wilderness recovery, this rare pair of Union spurs is matching in all respects but most importantly with respect to being a legitimate pair, show a matching, identical, patina on each spur. Experienced relic collectors will be appreciative of this as good evidence of a common recovery site. As to condition, the spurs are in pleasing shape while the iron rowels show expected detrition from the elements. An opportunity to acquire a rare matching pair of excavated spurs, knowledge of the conditions and aftermath of the Wilderness battle, where so many casualties were never recovered, will only enhance the interest of the Civil War historian.
