How sure are you that the name of this iris is 'Superstition'? I have one just like it and have been unable to ID it. I bought it years ago, probably from Spring Hill and the new owners have no idea what the older irises are. I call it 'Laura's Favorite' because it is my favorite and a favorite of many of my friends. I would really like to know if this is the official name.

Superstition is registered with the American Iris Society, so that is the correct name for this entry and the photos in it.

Whether yours is actually the cultivar 'Superstition' or not can be a bit tricky to figure out, as there are several dark/purple to black Iris. Without some purchase records, it's possible to get a list of potential candidates by process of elimination, but it's nearly impossible to positively ID from just a photo.
