This is an iron forged pin that is 12 3/4 long about 3/4 thick at the thickest with a 3 inch figure eight swivel at the top. It is in great shape, very solid and I would say usable if you wanted to picket your horse. There is some minor corrosion on the pin due to age but very little, see the pictures. You do not see many Civil War era picket pins as they were used up during and after the war and are quite rare today. This would make a great display item for your Civil War McClellan saddle.So be sure to check our other listings. You may do so by clicking on the link below.
