    Description

    Boyle & Gamble Foot Officer's Sword, 35" overall length, 29.5" blade. Open scrollwork on brass guard, laurel engraved on pommel, "26" stamped on underside of the guard, leather-bound wooden grip secured with brass wire. The scabbard is not original to the sword, however is period and fits nicely. Some loss to the blade tip and moderate rusting is present. Approximately 60% of grip wire remains and there is some loss to the leather. The various elements of this sword are loose. Given its condition, this should be an affordable Confederate sword as made by Virginia's largest edged weapons supplier.

    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.
