Wild Bill Hickok’s Straight Razor

A John Pearce, bone handled straight razor with silver dot inlays, with case. From James Butler Hickok's Deadwood, North Dakota estate and descended through his family.

Provenance: Accompanied by a signed and notarized document that reads as follows:

“This silver inlaid, bone handled straight razor with its accompanying black case belong to James Butler (Wild Bill) Hickok and was retrieved following his death in Deadwood, South Dakota in Aug. 1876, by his brother Lorenzo Butler Hickok. The razor was subsequently given to Wild Bill’s older brother Horace Dewey Hickok who resided in the Hickok home town of Homer, Illinois (presently Troy Grove, Illinois). The razor then passed to Horace’s daughter Ethel, and later to myself, Edith Andrews Harmon, Ethel’s niece and executor of her estate. The razor was recently sold to Steve Dancey.”

Signed Edith A. Harmon and notarized.
