Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale an Authentic Brass Headed Branding Iron #6 or #9
This is an authentic Brass headed branding iron from Hot Springs, South Dakota where I personally dug it out of a barn with several other irons. It is not a remake but the original item. Brass irons were used mostly on horses and are still used today. The Brass iron was frozen with dry ice or CO2 not heated. Freezing would damage the hair follicles allowing only white hair to grow and it was also easier on the animal. The Brand is either a #6 or a #9 the head is solid brass and the long handle is steel.
When copper ages it either turns green or black and this has turned a wonderful black patina. This has a repair on the number at some point but only adds to the authentic look. Prickly Pear Cactus not included in purchase.

Era; 1920-30s
Size; overall length is 41” Number measures 4” tall, 2.5” wide.
Condition; very solid with wonderful patina. It has been repaired at some point in the middle of the number there is a brass weld.
