Roy Rogers' personal eagle boots and Bohlin spurs, from the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum Collection.
SPURS: 1930s Edward H. Bohlin silver overlaid, Hollywood, California, maker-marked stainless steel spurs with 2 1/2" shanks, 1 3/4" cookie-cutter rowels. Bohlinmade, Hollywood oval football cartouche stamped below the bar affixed to the swinging buttons on the left spur. Right spur made-to-match. 2-piece floral carved, Bohlin marked straps with 1 1/2" scalloped and engraved conchos and 3-piece maker-marked 1/2" engraved sterling buckle sets. Holes drilled on the heelbands for tie downs.
BOOTS: Classic Roy Rogers custom-made boots with inlaid eagles on the shaft and back quarter, and another eagle on the vamp. Gold inlaid stars cross the top piping with decorative pulls. The boots have a Roy-made 2" slit on along the sole, his unique way of breaking in a snug pair of boots according to his son, Dusty.
Worn extensively by Roy from the early 1940s through the 1950s. Prominently displayed in numerous photos and at the Victorville and Branson Museums.
