I agree, it's a very interesting horn, with that loop carved, it would have takin a careful hand.

 Neat horn, is that tab the only place for a strap or is there evidence of maybe a staple in the butt?

Love it!  That horn is a beauty.

It looks like it came off the left side of the animal, but the suspension lobe at the base sets it up for right-side carry.

Is that a piece of wire twisted around the neck, between the two rings?  I've seen that before, but I don't know what purpose it served.  A close-up photo of the neck would be appreciated.

Thanks for showing this fine old horn!

Best regards,

The horn appears to have the base, or post, for a small lanyard ring screwed in between the two raised "strap retaining" rings on the spout and lined up with the small tab on the butt end. This is a nicely made horn, a keeper.

Thank you.  I donít think Iíve seen anything quite like that before.

I really like that horn, though.
