January 2018 Auction Ends Thursday, January 25th, 5pm Pacific
One of the last surviving relics of the Battle of Little Bighorn, a metal arrowhead measuring 4'' long, streaked with yellow war paint which, in Native American culture, symbolizes a willingness to fight to the death. And fight to the death they did; the Native American tribes had a resounding victory at Little Bighorn, killing and wounding over 300 federal troops including General George Custer. Arrowhead was part of the collection of Stella Foote, and then part of the equally impressive Alexander Acevedo collection, who auctioned the piece through Butterfield & Butterfield as part of Lot 113 in their ''Important Custer, Indian War & Western Memorabilia'' sale on 4 April 1995. Arrowhead measures 4'' long and .75'' wide, with a 1'' jagged nock at the end. Expected tarnishing but overall in very good condition, fully intact and with yellow war paint still dramatic.
