Collection History:

Said to have been given to Tecumseh (Shawnee, 1768-1813) by the British circa 1812, and carried during the Battle of the Thames in 1812 by Sawa Benashe (probably Yellow Hawk/Othaawaapeelethee, Shawnee, ca. 1728-ca. 1820), and handed down in Yellow Hawk's family as an heirloom. Purchased by Milford G. Chandler (1889-1981) in 1942 and part of his collection until 1961 when it was presumably sold to MAI.
