14HM313, in Hamilton County, is a multicomponent site with both prehistoric and historic artifacts, of which this bit is one. While there are many different styles of bits, this particular bit seems closest to what is called a half check Dexter snaffle. One check ring has been broken off of the bit and has been attached with a wire by the last owner.

Date: 1880-1930
