    Confederate Boyle & Gamble & Macfee Cavalry Officer's Saber, Richmond, Virginia. A Boyle, Gamble & Macfee of Richmond, Virginia cavalry saber. The saber has its original mint grips with single strand copper wire. The flat unfullered blade that is customary with this model is uncleaned and in near-mint condition. The leather scabbard is totally intact, supple with no repairs and retains its original drag. Also intact is the drag, which many times is missing. The saber has impeccable provenance and is one of the best ever offered for sale.

    Provenance: Dr. Garvin Collection

    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.
