Historic Idaho Steerhorn Mount - 112 Inches tip to tip This longhorn mount is an Idaho legend ! They were owned by Sulphur Creek and Pistol Creek founders Marv and Barbara Hornback, and we understand they hung at Pistol Creek for many years. In 1966 , after Marvins untimely death, Barbara loaned them to the Pioneer Tent & Awning Co. to hang in their historic downtown Boise building. There is a note attached to the back of the mount attesting to this. We came in possession of this spectacular mount from the daughter of Marvin & Barbara who could no longer keep them, and after having them hang in our office until we sold our business, we are ready to pass them along to new caretakers. The horns measure 112 inches from tip to tip, and are bound with a handsome tooled leather binding. They are magnificent, and a real Idaho Treasure. Priced at $3500. Call to see. 208-562-8348

Comments and Description:
Genuine U.S. WWII Fins and a slice of the bottom body from a M38A2 practice 100 pound water/sand filled dummy bomb. These were dropped by the U.S. Army from B17 Planes in practice training for WWII. This is of very hard strong metal and top edge of main body can be chipped off in small pieces.
This is an authentic and a rare military collectible artifact. It was beautifully decorated in the U.S.A. Flag motif. A perfect collectible to be cherished for years to come and forever. Measures approx. 8" x 8" at base and 25" total in height.
All components are original. They may have some imperfections/damage from being fired or dropped from the air and each display is unique in its own way. Each piece could have some minor tear/wear from display/storage but just enhances its character. (May have even been dropped by Jimmy Stewart who trained here during the war).
