Relic shows are cancelling left and right, and one show promoter told me he didn't think there'd be any shows until next year. If that's the case, we'll sorely miss seeing our friends. Who knows what will happen, but we're still here operating in this new, online-only world. Getting things to where we can photograph and ship them is a little more challenging than usual, but fortunately some good people keep asking us to buy and sell their accumulations so we're plugging away! Please be patient and stay safe.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

M00452 - Artillery Pole Pad

Item Number: M00452

Item Title: Artillery Pole Pad

Price: $90

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US/CS

Model: Horse Equipage

Type: Pad


Location Recovered: Non-dug

Description:This is what is commonly called a limber pole pad but they were used on the end of the carriage poles so they would not bother the horses as much on a turn if the pole dug into the horse's side. This is constructed of stitched leather over padding around a hard cup. This one, unlike many, still retains the pin that holds it on the pole. Most are unmarked such as this one but on occasion you find them with arsenal markings on them. The marked ones bring big bucks. There are a few shapes and sizes but this one is very typical. It is a nice variety items for an artillery collection.
