Rarest of rare-TLS by Theodore W. Goldin, 7th US Cavalry, Medal of Honor for Little Big Horn Battle
Rarest of rare-TLS by Theodore W. Goldin, 7th US Cavalry, Medal of Honor recipient for the June 25th, 1876 Little Big Horn Battle!
Typed Letter Signed to a fellow veteran. Signatures of Goldin are as scarce as they come. I can find only one example of his autograph (another TLS from the late 1920’s) being available on the web in Heritage Auctions from several years ago.
I purchased a small amount of letters he sent to his “Old Pal” Colonel Anthony A. Barron. These were then sent to the early cowboy movie star Ken Maynard by Barron for him to read and keep.
In fine condition with wear as shown. A jewel for any 7th US Cavalry collector!

"In February 1894, while serving with Company K, Hackett signed an affidavit he had written stating he remembered Private Theodore Goldin, of his then Company G, being a member of the water party during the second day of the Little Big Horn Battle. Goldin had applied for the Medal of Honor in 1893 claiming he was part of the group of volunteers that obtained water for the wounded and the rest of the command. The War Department wanted proof to his claim, questioning many of the officers and men that had participated in the battle and who knew of Goldin and his actions during it. It would seem many did besides Hackett, including Otto Voit a Medal of Honor recipient, who remembered Goldin as a member of his own water party. Goldin was duly awarded the Medal of Honor on 21 December 1894."
