    Description

    French Model 1872/1874 Other Ranks' Dragoon Helmet. Silvered metal body with brass trim and leather-backed brass chinscales. The gilded comb is decorated on both sides with volutes and laurel leaves and the front bears the head of Medusa. A black horsehair tail hangs from the rear of the comb. The helmet is fitted with a seven-fingered cloth covered leather. The body has scattered small dents, is missing three of the comb screws, and the top of comb (Medusa's head) is missing the retaining screw so the piece is loose. Otherwise the helmet is in good condition.

    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.
