    Swiss Model 1869/71 Vetterli Repeating Rifle. Cal. 10.4 x 38 Rimfire. Serial Number 35624. All visible numbers matching. "Bellefontaine Berne/ Cordier & Cie" marked on the left side of the receiver. Numerous Swiss military proofs elsewhere. Original finish worn to a uniform brown patina with some old surface rust. Walnut stock with the usual wear commensurate with military use. Bright bore. There are the remains of an old paper label on the right side of the butt stock. These rifles have become very scarce in recent years because of a great demand for them on the Swiss market.

    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.
