On Those Saber Hangers

I got an M1904 enlisted hanger because it was available and I was enlisted...  The officer model has metal "dog leash" clips instead of just being tabbed leather.

It differs from the period correct predecessor in that it's in natural leather instead of russet brown.

That model differs from its predecessor in being russet brown instead of black.

They're all simplifications of the original, and patented, design of JEB Stuart.  Yes, THAT JEB Stuart.

There are many different hangers over the years too.
