Liberal, Missouri No. 57 KKK Seal Embossing Machine


This is a very rare device, and unique to the "Strange Town" of Liberal, Missouri. It dates to the early days of the 2nd Klan (early 1920s).

The town of Liberal, Missouri (population 803 in 2003) has an interesting history.  It was founded in 1880 with the intent of building a town without a church. The local historical society has a number of essays written by students of the town in 1895 for the Liberal Enterprise newspaper. You can read them here. A more recent history (2001) is here.

The machine is a hand-lever embossing machine with complete and undamaged top and bottom dies. A sample of the 2-inch Knights of the Ku Klux Klan seal produced by this device is shown below:

It measures 10 inches high with the handle up, as shown. There is a hole for fitting a bolt to stabilize the device in use. The body of the device is cast iron with a bronze top die and pewter lower die. The name of the town is clearly visible in that image. This is view of the device from the other side. It is painted in a high gloss black enamel with gilt trim and red designs on each side.

The condition is near excellent throughout.  This is a most unusual opportunity to acquire a physical piece of early 2nd Klan memorabilia and would be a centerpiece of any advanced collection.

Primary Order of Knighthood


This is a very rare Primary Order of Knighthood of the Knights Kamellia. It was signed and sealed at the Imperial Palace in Atlanta, Georgia by the Imperial Wizard H. W. (Hiram Wesley) Evans, and attested to by the Acting Imperial Kligrapp J. E. MacQuinn.  MacQuinn took over the duties of Imperial Kligrapp on the failing health of N. N. Furney.  Documents signed by MacQuinn date from 8 May 1926 to approximately March of 1927.

This document measures 14 by 17 inches. It is printed in orange-red and black ink with gold and silver embellishments and trim.  It has two foil seals deeply impressed into the document, as can be seen in the images of the reverse side of the document in those areas.

This is a close-up of the Imperial Seal with the purple ribbon and the reverse side of the document showing the MacQuinn signature.  This is a close-up of the Imperial Wizard's seal showing the Evans signature and the reverse side.  This is a close-up of the named portion of the document.

The condition of the document is near excellent throughout.  It was sealed in plastic many years ago and the plastic would be difficult for anyone but an expert document restoration specialist to remove without seriously damaging the document.  There are four small pinholes in the original document at the extreme corners, however with proper matting and framing none of these flaws would be apparent.

This is a premium document, with a rare set of signatures from an interesting period in Klan history.  1926 was a year of turmoil within the organization for a number of internal and external reasons.  Surviving documents are very hard to find in this condition.

White Supremacy and Negro Subordination 1868  KKK-11B

1868 Van Evrie book titled; "White Supremacy and Negro Subordination"
Illustrated with a black and white frontispiece and six full page chromolithographs depicting the various races: Caucasian, Mongolian, Oceanic, American Indian, Esquimaux [Eskimos], Negro.

Second edition, published the same year as the first. Hinges strong and all pages firmly attached.  Mild shelf-wear to cloth and sporadic  dampstain not affecting text or color plates. No name, no book-plate, no marking or underlining, etc. Contents 1, 2

 An early post Civil War example of "scientific" literature purporting to show the inferiority of the various races to the white man, in particular the Negro. These arguments fueled and supported many of the laws passed by cities and municipalities limiting the scope of Negro participation in the new post-war American democracy.

As Douglas C. Baynton writes in his article 'Disability and the Justification of Inequality in American History', "By the turn of the century medical doctors were still arguing that African Americans were disabled by freedom and therefore in need of greater oversight."

An important reminder of of America's checkered past as regards race and race relations.
