    Double Loop Texas Half Skirt Side Holster and Money Belt, Circa 1890. The holster, with a closed toe, is for a 7.½" Colt .44 caliber SAA pistol. The belt measures 33½" at the smallest and up to 37½" at the longest. There is a row of cartridge loops for thirty-six individual .44 caliber rounds. Although unmarked, the holster has scratched on the skirt, "Atilano Avyta/ Jose F. Nolan". This may be Jose Fermin Nolan, born in San Miguel County, New Mexico in 1858. The 3" money belt is marked "Royal 28". The belt, with a clipped corner buckle, shows modest, honest wear. The holster has had some re-stitching, but is attractive and fine.

    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.
