This bit is made of steel
It has a jointed mouthpiece, and full cheeks.
The leather cheekpieces of the bridle would have passed through the bit rings directly to the reins, causing the mouthpiece to ride up in the horse's mouth when pressure was applied to the gag rein.
There is some light surface oxidation on this bit, I have not cleaned it.
