    C. 1815 American Eaglehead Artillery Officer's Saber. Plain 28", 1 1/2" wide curved blade with generally smooth gray patina and just some scattered salt and peppering and staining. The hilt utilizes the "Bolton/Upson" eaglehead, fluted knucklebow which splits at the base forming two thin scalloped branches along with a scalloped central section under the grip, the three terminating in a clamshell quillon. One very minor bend on one of the outboard branches, minor, with the hilt retaining 80% of the original gilt. Fluted ivory grip about perfect with nice mellow patina, 3/8" brass ferrule at the base. There is no scabbard. Very attractive eaglehead from this earlier period in very desirable form.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    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.
