This is an original leather sling from a Krag. This sling type can and was used on other rifles in the later 1800s. It has very good brass hardware and very good leather. The keeper stitching is very strong. The leather is strong and will easily hold the weight of a rifle, including the keepers. The leather has medium and darker medium brown colors. The leather is firm and pliable with some minor wear spots. About 1/3 of the frog keeper holes have a minor surface crack and there is one near the frog. Areas that look like wrinkles are minor surface cracks. There is an extra pair of frog keeper holes in-between two other pairs. They look like the other holes so this may just be a factory error that adds something rare and unique to the sling. Very nice looking sling. It measures approximately 67 ½ inches inches. The backside of the leather looks very good. The item “ORIGINAL LEATHER US MILITARY KRAG, TRAPDOOR & SPRINGFIELD RIFLE SLING” is in sale since Saturday, May 25, 2019.
