    Buffalo Skinner's Kit with Tools. A superb and representative that span the most productive two decades from the early 1870s through the early 1890s. The conical leather pouch, 7 ¼" deep and 2 ¼" across, is slotted with leather dividers for four knives and a steel. The 36" belt has steer head buckles. The tools are: a. Unmarked Sheffield butcher knife, probably an early I Wilson, 10" in length with 5 ¾" blade. b. Matching skinning knife, again probably an unmarked early I Wilson. c. Unmarked hand-forged skinning knife, half tang, 9 ½" long; d. Fine 1890s Bowie-style hunting knife marked "[arrow] F. Dick/Germany." e. And finally an unusual 15 ¾" sharpening rod with a 12" elliptical steel, cast brass handle and steer head motif. This set is featured on page 83 of Gilbert, Remiger, and Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Buffalo Hunters and Skinners, volume 1.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
