I'm trying to put together at least 5 nice displays to start taking to some of the gun collector shows in Utah, Wyoming and Colorado. I'm just about finished with the fourth being a 1913 mule saddle that I will post pictures of soon. It had new rigging and latigos made by John Fitzgerald and Tom Smith made a fantastic looking cincha for it and some coat straps. I’m sure it’s no secret here that both these guys do fantastic work. I'm still looking for a nice 1928 for the number five. The first is a 1st pattern 1904 artillery that I just acquired some 1904 militia saddles bags for, they may not be historically correct but I liked them and they date about right. It has a 1904 rifle scabbard attached. The 1904 second pattern on the left dates 1917 and it sports second pattern 1904 saddle bags, officer’s saddle pad and a Patton officer's saber. The second pattern 1904 on the right dates 1917 and has a set of modified 1924 saddle bags. I was lucky enough to come across the mint un-issued 1908 saddle blanket that it sits on. It has a 1918 rifle scabbard attached. I’m a novice collector and would appreciate any constructive criticism you guys have.
