Lot 494: 1936 KKK Presentational Bat
Here's a phenomenal piece of American history... a 25-inch ornately detailed bat with gold-leafed vines wrapped around the mid-barrel portion meeting a silver metal scroll at the handle. On the scroll is engraved "R. Huff, Fulton, Missouri, 1936, Ku Klux Klan." A silver-colored metal wraps around the handle while the knob is inlaid with what appear to be 12 ivory circles. On one the end of the knob is a hooked silver cross inlaid with "KKK" engraved on it. The 25" bat shows some wear but overall is in EX condition.
