    Possibly French. Having a 36 1/2-inch straight double edge blade with a single groove. Blade marked XX UN DEI X UN REI. Wire and fish skin handle. Interesting Coat of Arms with a Fluer de Lys pattern and standing eagle among a chiseled floral pattern adorns the cup hilt and pommel.

    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.
