This genuine pair of Martin Luther King's personally owned cufflinks were gifted to long time collector Jim Schendel, who was a known collector of many fields that wrote to athletes, historic figures, presidents and important individuals asking for items to add to his massive collection since the 1950s. Some of these figures would send back signed letters, photos and even personal items. Featured here is a pair of MLK's personally owned cufflinks with a secretarial cut signature. Both square cufflinks have "Swank" engraved on the back and show evident use.
