SCARCE SHARPS CARBINE DOUBLE THONG CLEANING BRUSH:  Natural bristle brush with a leather thong permanently pinned into the brass ferrule at both ends of the brush, as issued with the early Sharps Carbines and carried by the soldiers in their saddlebags.  The brush is clean and full form with no loss of bristles and both leather thongs are pliable and full length with no cracking or other damage.  These double brushes are far scarcer than the carbine brushes with the single thong and are seldom offered for sale.  See Gun Tools, Vol. I (Shaffer, Rutledge, & Dorsey) page 284 for more details.  This will be a nice addition to display with your Sharps Carbine.  $250
