    U.S. 1864 Dated M1860 Light Cavalry Saber by Roby With Hanger. An exceptional example of this collector favorite with the blade marked "C. Roby / W. Chelmsford / Mass." on the obverse and "U.S. / 1864 / A.G.M." on the reverse. The grip retains the wire wrap and the leather is superb. One arm of the brass guard is bent but not cracked, otherwise the blade is bright with only trivial spotting. The scabbard is without dents and complete with hanger with a U.S. Ordnance Dept. mark stamped in the leather and "E. Gaylord Chicopee" stamped into the brass catch. A beautiful example.

    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.
