Here is one you do not see for sale that often, a M1859 Cavalry Bit No.1, known by many as well as collectors as the Ring Bit. The bit appears to be in barn find condition, its way too nice to be dug. The iron is stable throughout and it retains its original shape. It has the lower bar, rings, both US bit bosses, as well as the large ring. There are no markings that can be found. Very cool bit and the first in a series of four bits adopted for this model.
