Three different military bits and a pair of military spurs. The spurs are "US AB" (August Bauermann). The bits are from different eras. The oldest, marked US 1859, with a maker's mark that is obscurred. (Cavalry). The second is nickle plated brass (emblem) and iron, marked US, with RIA along one side. The third is a French artillery bit with the classic crossed cannon emblems on the edges in brass on a cast iron bit dating to 1860 or before, judging by the manufacturing style.
