It’s unmarked as to its maker, dates to the 1870s, and is an exclusive item directly from the collection of Bruce Canfield, the noted authority on US military small arms of the post-Civil War era. The sling comes with a signed letter of authenticity guaranteeing its originality, and the fact that it’s resided in Mr. Canfield’s personal collection for the last 30 years.
