A Nickel Wilson Snaffle Bit

A Wilson snaffle. The cheekpieces would attach to one bit ring, and the reins to the other - increasing the severity of the bit, although they can be used with two sets of reins so that one set gives a normal snaffle action.
This bit is plated - this was done to protect from rust before stainless steel was in common use.
