    Pair of Unmarked Classic Bowie Knives, with scabbards. Both knives feel good in the hand. a. Shallow clip point 10" blade (15-3/4" overall) with steel ferrule and rear bolster, band and butt cap. The staghorn grip is partially checkered. The condition is very good, consistent with age. With it is a buffalo hide (cowhide?) covered leather scabbard and 48" belt. b. 12-3/4" knife, shallow clip-point 8" blade with integral quillions, through tang, polished bone handle, and steel rear bolster and peen. The blade is heavily ground and polished; the tang and butt cap show a lot of rust. The scabbard is leather, stitched with copper rivets, 13-3/4" overall with 9-5/8" sheath.

    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.
