  1. Hello,
    Enjoying reading about your museum and your history. I understand you have some journals of J O Bass spurs that may can help me.

    • I own a pair of J O Bass spurs Stamped on them: No. 166’ • made by J O Bass • Quitaque Tx. • Sept 27 1904

    This article below, which I’m sure is old, states, Mr. Glasscock saying your recorders would show they would be made in Tulia.

    “As noted in Bass’s work journals – copies of which are in the Swisher County Museum – the last pair of spurs made in Quitaque were numbered 165 and the first set made in his Tulia shop are No. 166. Mr Glasscock “

    Anyway you could verify this for me ? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Les Cantrell
