Revolutionary war caltrop

Item Number: D0462


Revolutionary War hand made anti-personnel and anti-horse caltrop weapon.Extremely rare, original Revolutionary War Era Hand-Made Caltrop. Each spike measures about 1.25”. Caltrops were small antipersonnel and anti-horse weapons with 4 sharpened spikes that would be scatted on roads or trails and in stream beds to puncture boots or hooves and disable the victim. These were designed with the 4 spikes so there was always one pointing up. Similar to one pictured on page 57 of “Collector’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution” by George Neumann and Frank Kravic, 1977. An outstanding, sharp and impressive example.
