This is a single 1940 dated stirrup from a German cavalry saddle of the Second World War. We acquired it locally in the High Plains range country of the Black Hills of southwestern South Dakota and can only assume that it came off an anonymous saddle that someone rode locally without any knowledge of its history for the last few decades.
The 5-3/8 inch wide, 5-7/8 inch tall 14-½ ounce steel stirrup is Waffenamt stamped with an eagle and swastika just to the left of the 8 x 35 mm stirrup strap slot at the top. The Waffenamt stamp number is unreadable but there is also a shield shaped manufacturer's logo stamped next to it. The bottom of the stirrup is stamped Reichsheer 1940.
In every other way this is a very typical European Army stirrup with chisel marks on the face where the sole of the rider's boot rests to create an anti-slip surface.

A unique conversation piece just the way it is, or a very hard to find extra. Condition exactly as shown.
