Horse shoe nail cross necklace

Description :

Own a piece of history from the Fur Trade era.
1 handmade Iron horseshoe nail cross with Buckskin thong. Price: $18.00 +$4.00 s&h. The cross measures 2-1/4” high by 1-3/4” across. The cross is made from Iron Horse Shoe nails, cut and soldered to form the cross. These nails have been modified to look exactly like 1700’s horse shoe nails , (thanks to Buck) then aged. The cross is wrapped at the connecting joint with tin plated Copper wire and soldered again for further strength.
Many a Mountain Man and fur trapper had his scalp saved by wearing one of these. Even though the Indians were considered Savages, they held Christian symbols in great regard with their belief of a higher power. They might have been considered savages, but most weren’t uncivilized in that regard. Most Indians would never harm a White man wearing a spirit symbol. This would look great on you at your next rendezvous or living history gathering; and you will fit right in with the fur trapper crowd from the 1700’s. Since I make these one at a time, no two will be exactly the same.
If you’re interested contact me, or PM me. As always, thanks for looking.
God bless:
