These three rifle trigger guards were in the bucket with the other 19th century Lepley gun parts that were found on the Lepley farm in Southampton Township, Somerset County, Pa in the 1970's. Other, broken trigger guards were also in the bucket. The longest two of these guards measure 9-1/8" in length. They are made from non-ferrous material. The order of the guards, top to bottom, is the same in both photos.
