    Rare 1902 Indian Scouts Uniform - Coat, Trousers, and Cap. The 28" overall long 1890 pattern 5-button blouse has a full wool lining, sergeant's chevron on the sleeve in red-trimmed white stripes, and a red-trimmed service stripe. On both sides of the collar is the brass insignia "U.S.S." The blue trousers, 38" long, bear the 1890-authorized red-trimmed white stripe. Inside the waist band is stenciled "56 L 40." There is some staining and a few minor moth holes. The newly issued service cap has a 1¾" visor and brass "U.S.S." insignia on the front. The maker's name, Susskind, and the stamp of the Philadelphia Depot are clearly stamped on the sweatband. There is a small hole in the lining and minor sweat stains. The cap and the rest of this outfit are in very 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.
