We open with bejeweled Tzarist Russia military badges - very rare. Our appraisers admire a delicately carved scrimshaw horn and a silk “parachute dress” from World War II. There’s a portrait of an escaped Civil War slave from Mt. Airy who joined the famous 54th Massachusetts Infantry, and hidden documents signed by Francis Scott Key, who penned the National Anthem.
