Arapaho Knife Sheath - This is a large old Knife Sheath made aproximately 1900. It shows little use but is real and is old. This often is because it was made for a Trading Post and was sold to a settler or another Indian Trader then found its way into a early collection. This came out of the Mark H. Brown collection - Mark wrote "Before Barbed Wire", "The Frontier Years" and "Plainsmen to the Yellowstone". I purchased his collection in Storm Lake Iowa in 1978 and he was 92 years old when I did. He had a major frontier gun and Indian collection.
The bag measures : 9 1/2" long ( the top to bottom of the bag ) X 3 1/4" wide. The tassle measures : 7" long.
