A stainless steel curb bit.
This design of bit has been used by many military and police forces because it is "universal". That is, one bit can be adapted to suit many horses - the mouthpiece is half twisted or reversible, and the turning cheeks have two rein slots to allow for different positioning of the curb rein.
This example is stamped on its mouthpiece "Hand Forged", "Super Stainless Steel" and it has the maker's initials "T.W." on the port.
The bit is in generally good condition although there are some scratches inside one of the cheeks.
Mouthpiece 14cm (5½") Cheeks 18cm (7")
