    Indian Wars Period U.S. Army Officer's Five Button Vest. A nice example of a vest from the post-Civil War U.S. army.

The vest is fully lined with a white smooth cotton material. The back panel is made of a black smooth cotton and the vest still retains the adjustment cloth belt and metal buckle. There is one interior slit pocket on the front right side. The vest is in very good condition with moderate mothing to the blue wool front.

    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.
