|Condition:||Excellent..but not bound.|
|Origin:||Storage Auction purchase|
|Provenance:||This is clearly a funeral program or an exceptional copy of the same for Coretta Scott King..although I'm not sure what to think of the fact it is not bound. I have reason to believe the person this belonged to was in some way associated with the MLK family as there several other related items.|
|Appraised By:||Thomas Joyce|
|Appraiser Comments:||Mrs. King's funeral service was held February 6, 2006. This is an excellent original copy of this funeral program. At least one copy of this was sold on eBay in February, 2007. I cannot confirm that all of the parts -as distributed- are present, but I expect that they are all there. Mrs. King is among the outstanding women of the 20th century, and a seminal participant in the American Civil Rights Movement. I would price this at $100, but, I could see come people trying to get 50-100% more than that for it - but that might especially work in Atlanta, GA,, for the tourist trade. I do think that in most locations and situations, $100 would be a more reliably successful price -especially for one in such excellent condition.|
