Civil War Saddles and accessories are some of my favorite artifacts, problem is I can never find them in great condition. These are in very fine condition and a full 12" X 12" and pack 5" thick. Sound and supple, one bag has a small mouse hole in its back-side that is not visible unless you look for it. Leather retains a nice finish and seams, buckles and straps are all sound. These could have been used a little before the Civil War, during the war and certainly after.
