https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2811417/Phil-Collins-brings-world-s-largest-private-Alamo-collection-including-gun-used-Davy-Crockett-home-Texas.html In 2014 Phil Collins donated one of the largest collections of Alamo militaria to the Museum. The collection was given to Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, the state steward of the Alamo, at the time. One controversial item was a knife supposed to have been James Bowie's at the time of the siege. Such claims are always controversial since no one really knows what Bowie carried at the time. One thing that is sure, there are no other examples of "brass backed" knives until much later making this a hot topic to historical bowie collectors/researchers. A new set of publications will be coming out soon to add to the controversy. Be on the lookout for something in Texas Monthly's June or July edition.
