These extremely rare grizzly chaps were obtained while in northern Wyoming near the Montana border. They were mounted on a board and labeled on the back, "Blackfoot Montana Territory". The chaps are of rifle caliber, with two rows of loops, the lower row smaller in diameter than the upper. They are adorned with a central beaded rosette of Blackfoot pattern, actual cartridge case fragments consisting of the rims which are embedded in the leather, front paw grizzly claws, and some square brass nails in their construction. The grizzly pelts are in excellent condition and are of a beautiful golden hue. They are mounted in a locking case with a plexiglass front. The provenance included the information the chaps were believed to have been owned and worn by Jackson Sundown. They were examined by the curators at the Cody Museum who attributed them to Jackson Sundown and it is possible they are from Buffalo Bill's Wild West. These are circa 1885-1910.
