Antique North And Judd Cowboy Spurs

History

North and Judd spurs (N&J) are one of the most collectible types of saddlery hardware, cowboy equipment and especially western spurs. From their humble beginnings in pre 1800 to the well known North & Judd Manufacturing Company of Connecticut in 1878, North and Judd have become one of the finest makers of boot spurs.

From the flamboyant to the plain, the style and design of these parts of American history are highly sought after in the minds of Heel Spur collectors. North and Judd were responsible for manufacturing and supplying the US army during the Civil war and by the early 1900s had over 500 staff working for them.

If you are interested in purchasing a set of these spurs, make sure they are marked with the famous North & Judd Anchor. The anchor trademark which was used on all of their saddlery hardware including bits, buckles, rings, terrets and harnesses is the recognized mark of a quality maker.

Identification

All of the North and Judd Spurs were made from either Iron, Brass or Bronze. The processes also involved nickel plating, electro-brass plating or just burnished and polished.

Always look for the Anchor brand mark on the spurs or items you are purchasing.

You may wish to bear in mind that in 1926, North and Judd acquired the Buermann Company, their competitor and a well known maker of spurs, bits and stirrups.

The famous Buermann Star brand and trademark was transferred to North and Judd who changed its use slightly. The Buermann spurs made under the ownership of N&J were now stamped with a small star under the outside buttons.
