Found this m1892 bit with leather reins attached. Do the viewers believe these reins to be original to the bit? Thanks.

Further research finds that the type of attachment of the reins to the bit used on this example does not conform to the images and drawings published. Evidently the rein was looped through the bit ring and secured with just a regular buckle. Images found in "The Horse Soldier" Volume III by Randy Steffen. Regards.
