GAMING DEVICES - MORPHY’S may hold these items for up to 5 business days to allow state agencies to verify the buyer’s information. All auction participants are urged to check the legality of possession in and/or shipment of gaming devices to their state of residence. Ownership of gaming devices is prohibited in these states: Alabama, Connecticut, Hawaii, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Tennessee. If you become a high bidder on a gaming item, and you are from one of the prohibited states as listed here: • You must pay for your item, • You will not be able to take possession of the item (MORPHY’S cannot ship it to you or allow pickup), • MORPHY’S will consign the item in your name to the next appropriate auction. If you do not pay for the item in full, MORPHY’S will block you from participating in future auctions. Any gaming device purchased at the auction shall be used for the purpose of display or social entertainment within the private home or residence of the buyer, and such devices shall not, in any event or manner, be exposed to the public for the purpose of gambling or be resold in the state of Nevada without a gaming distribution license. Proof of residence/ID is required for purchase of gaming devices. FIREWORKS – MORPHY’S can only ship Class 1 Division 1.4 and 1.6 Explosives (as described in the following website: http:// per the 49CFR 173.50 and can only ship these via FedEx. All items not shippable must be picked up by the buyer. SPORTS COLLECTIBLES • Return Considerations o MORPHY’s is not responsible for a third party grading company agreeing or disagreeing with our assessment, and we cannot issue refunds or credits if cards do not receive a numerical grade or the exact grade that we describe. MORPHY’s strongly recommends that you personally evaluate any items that you are bidding on, and make your own determination about its grade. MORPHY’S offers no guarantee of grade for uncertified items sold and subsequently submitted to a third-party grading service. o Cards sold referencing a third-party grading service are sold “as is” without any express or implied warranty. Certain warranties may be available from the grading services, and the Bidder is referred to them for further details: Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), Sportscard Guaranty LLC (SGC), Global Authentics LLC, Beckett Grading Services (BGS), JO Sports, Inc. o MORPHY’S will not accept return of certified items due to possible differences of opinion with respect to the grade offered by any third-party organization, dealer, or service. Grading does not qualify for return evaluation, nor do such complaints constitute a basis to challenge the authenticity of a lot. o MORPHY’s shall not be liable for any patent or latent defect or controversy pertaining to or arising from any encapsulated collectible. In any such instance, buyer’s remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service certifying the collectible. o Under extremely limited circumstances related solely to authenticity, such as a highly significant cataloging error, a buyer, who did not bid from the floor, may request MORPHY’S to evaluate voiding a sale. (continued...)


Terms & Conditions o Lots returned must be completely intact in their original form and undamaged holder, or there will be no credit. Certifications are void and returns are not accepted for any cards removed from their third-party grading holder. o All elements of the MORPHY’S POST-SALE RETURN POLICY apply. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. • On any lot presented with a Letter of Authenticity (“LOA”) issued by MORPHY’S o The bidder shall solely rely upon the warranties of the authentication provider issuing the Letter or opinion, or on the warranties of the authentication provider of the bidder’s choice. o Warranty inures only to the original buyer. Buyer may not transfer the rights afforded under the LOA, and it is null and void when Buyer transfers or attempts to transfer the lot. o The LOA warranty is valid from date of the auction in which Buyer was awarded the lot to four (4) years after its purchase. o The LOA warranty is valid as to its attribution to the person or entity described or to the lot’s usage, e.g. game worn. o Claim procedure: o Buyer must contact MORPHY’S within the warranty period, prior to submission of the lot as to his intent to make a claim, receive prior approval, and arrange secure shipment. o Buyer must present with the claim, authoritative written evidence that the lot is not authentic as determined by a known expert in the sports field. o If MORPHY’S concurs that the lot is not as represented, Buyer shall be refunded their purchase price. o If the MORPHY’s denies the claim, the Buyer agrees to the AGREEMENT REGARDING GOVERNING LAW, VENUE, AND LEGAL RIGHTS noted herein. o The LOA does not provide for incidental or consequential damages or other indirect damages. Any lot sold with a certificate of authenticity or other warranty from an entity other than Auctioneer or Morphy’s affiliates is subject to such issuing entity’s rules and such conditions are the sole remedy afforded to buyer. • In the event MORPHY’s cannot deliver the lot, or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title, provenance, or authenticity, MORPHY’s liability shall be limited to voiding of the sale and refund of purchase price. In no case shall MORPHY’s liability exceed the winning bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the lot. After one year has elapsed, MORPHY’S maximum liability shall be limited to any buyer’s premium earned on that lot. • Due to changing grading standards over time, differing interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, MORPHY’S reserves the right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that accompany the items. MORPHY’S also reserves the right to grade items differently than the grades shown in the prior catalog should such items be reconsigned to any future auction. • There is a subjectivity to grading, especially the grading of cards. Every effort is made to verify the condition of each lot as it is described. MORPHY’S accepts items for auction after careful scrutiny by not only ourselves, but, when necessary, by other leading authenticators. We cannot guarantee that every card described by us will in all cases receive exactly the same grade, or even be accepted for grading, from any third-party grading service. Similarly, we cannot guarantee that every card graded by one third-party grading service will in all cases receive exactly the same grade by another third-party grading service. Occasionally a lot description will include the words “we have submitted,” which is intended to be taken literally and give bidders great confidence that MORPHY’S has not “done anything” to the cards to alter or otherwise improve their appearance and

ultimate grade. No warranty, whether expressed or implied, is made with respect to any grade, condition, or other adjectival descriptions, which can and do vary, even among experts. • Large Autograph Group Disclaimer: When dealing with a single individual auction lot containing many items, these lots are offered with the explicit understanding that it is possible that there may be a small percentage which are not authentic. When authenticating large lots, such as a collection of 6,000+ signed 3 x 5 cards, or a set of 700+ signed baseball cards, great care has been taken in the authentication process, with all the greater attention focused on any items representing a concentration of value. It is always possible that on rare occasions a secretarial or stamped signature could be missed here or there. Without this disclaimer, as a practical matter, it would not be possible for MORPY’S to offer such lots at all. All bidders bidding on such lots do so with this understanding. • Abbreviation/Definition/Condition Key: PR — Poor, GD — Good, VG — Very Good, EX — Excellent, NM — Near Mint, MT — Mint. NOTE: If an item has a multiple grade such as VG-EX, then that item falls somewhere in between those two conditions. GOODS MADE FROM OR CONTAINING MATERIALS FROM PROTECTED SPECIES - MORPHY’S does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omission in marking or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such material includes, but is not limited to, ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal, and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. Laws include, but are not limited to, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES), the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Marine Mammals Protection Act (MMPA). States currently restricting trade of protected species include, but are not limited to, California, New York and New Jersey. Prospective buyers are on notice that several countries completely prohibit importation of property made, all or in part, of protected materials. Some countries require special permits, such as a CITES permit, from the relevant regulating authority in the countries of exportation and importation as well. Potential buyers intending to import the property into another country should be familiar with the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding on goods containing material from protected species. Regulations may vary as the U.S. generally prohibits importation of articles containing material(s) from species it has designated endangered or threatened if the articles are less than 100 years old, subject to certain exceptions. It shall be the potential buyer’s sole responsibility to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All buyers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions on the trade of protected species as a condition of the sale. Please note that the ability to obtain an export license or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import license or certificate in another country, and vice versa. It is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain any export or import licenses and/or certificates as well as any other required documentation. MORPHY’S is not able to assist the buyer in attempting to obtain the appropriate licenses and/or certificates, and there is no assurance that an export license or certificate can be obtained. The inability or delay in (continued...)


Terms & Conditions obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export goods containing material from protected species will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale of said goods or the delay in payment of purchased items in accordance with these Bidder Terms and Conditions. JEWELRY AND WATCHES • Jewelry Descriptions and Condition Reports: Lots being offered are sold as-is on the day of sale. Condition reports, either written or verbal, are provided as a courtesy only, and are not to be taken as fact or guarantees of condition or quality of the lots. All information provided is the opinion of the specialist at MORPHY’S, including but not limited to weights, grades, color, and clarity. All gemstones and diamonds are measured and graded in their setting unless stated otherwise. All weights and grades are approximate. Buyers wishing to have a grading or gemological report from an independent, internationally recognized laboratory, such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gemological Laboratories (AGL), may request one at their own expense or hire an independent adviser of their choosing. • Watch Descriptions and Condition Reports: The physical characteristics, timing accuracy or functionality of timepieces cannot be guaranteed, and all items are sold as-is. o Any condition statement reflects the condition of the watch on the date of the report. Condition can change from the time of the report to the day of sale. o Photographs are for identification purposes only. Buyers may not use them as precise indications of size or condition. o The origin or authenticity of all components cannot be guaranteed. o Watches with waterproof or water-resistant cases – MORPHY’S may open cases to develop descriptions, and cannot guarantee that any watch is waterproof or water-resistant at the time of purchase. MORPHY’S recommends that the buyer have a professional watchmaker evaluate the watch at buyer’s expense. o Buyers must be aware that watches may need general service, change of battery, or further repair work for which the buyer is solely responsible. o Dials - All watches have the possibility that after their original date of manufacture they received reconditioning or replacement of dials or elements of the dial such as but not limited to standard or luminescent hour markers, hands, script, date or measurement indices, lacquer, and finish. Buyer is solely responsible for determining and understanding such condition issues. • The lack of a condition report does not imply that the item or lot is free from imperfections, defects or wear and tear of the aging process. This includes but is not limited to: deficient stones, needed repair or defects. • It is common and generally accepted in the jewelry industry that some diamonds and most gemstones have been enhanced with various treatments to improve their overall appearance. o These treatments include but are not limited to: heating, dying, oiling, laser drilling, HTHP, wax, bleaching, irradiation, resin or polymer impregnation and various other techniques. o Unless stated in the title, it is assumed that one or more treatments have been performed to the stones. While many treatments are considered permanent, this cannot be guaranteed. o Please note that many treatments cannot be determined without sophisticated laboratory testing. Due to the various laboratories and developing scientific methods for testing, not all reports or certificates will have the same results for treatment type, extent of treatment and stability of treatment. o MORPHY’S makes no representations or warranties, express

or implied, as to whether natural stones have been treated or enhanced, whether specifically referenced or not. • Laboratory reports may accompany some lots o If a lot is accompanied by certificates or reports from internationally recognized and accepted gemological laboratories, it will be noted in the description. o Copies will be available upon request, with the original going to the successful bidder. o The reports cannot be guaranteed and are provided for informational purposes only. Results on reports may differ from laboratory to laboratory. o MORPHY’S accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports.

The auctioneer will determine the highest bidder. The auctioneer alone has the right to reopen the bidding of an item if deemed necessary due to a dispute. If there is a tie bid between the floor and Internet or absentee bid, the floor bid takes precedence. MORPHY’S and its representatives reserve the right to remove those attendees who impede preview and/or the auction. Title to all merchandise shall pass to the highest bidder at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. The buyer will then assume all risk and full responsibility of the lot purchased once ownership has changed. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. MORPHY’S is not responsible for any errors in bids, omissions of bids, or failure to execute bids and shall have no liability to any bidder for any technical or other failure associated with the internet, absentee bidding, or telephone bidding. • ABSENTEE BIDDING - MORPHY’S will accept absentee bids if pre-authorized by mail, fax or through www.morphyauctions. com online.

Terms & Conditions provided to one of the online bidding platforms, MORPHY’S reserves the right to use and charge the credit card if the winning bidder has not paid via another method by the 7 day term in Payment Terms below. Due to our fast paced auctions and bids coming from floor bidders, phone bidders, internet bidders and absentee bids, the auctioneer has the final word on all item(s) sold. You (the bidder) assume the risk of winning an item online and not having the item actually sell to you. This is due to the final call of the auctioneer and the operator not being able to re-open that lot. Online bidders are responsible for accidental bidding as if they bid normally. • BID RESULTS – MORPHY’S will only contact successful bidders.

Auctioneer’s discretion


The majority of our items are unreserved, but occasionally items may carry a moderate reserve. Please note that when a lot carries a reserve, the reserve is usually somewhere below our low estimate. In the case of a reserved item, the seller has authorized the auctioneer to bid on their behalf until the reserve price is reached.


A 23% buyer’s premium will be added to all successful bids and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase cost.

Please add this amount to your invoice total before sending a wire transfer. In the few situations where a successful bidder does not remit payment when due, MORPHY’S will proceed with the legal steps necessary to protect its interests and will block the bidder from future auction participation.


• It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping, handling, and insurance costs into consideration when bidding on items. • BIDDERS PRESENT AND TAKING ITEMS AFTER AUCTION – Since item liability transfers upon a successful bid, items paid for must be packed, transported and/or removed by the buyer at his/her own risk after the close of the sale. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. If any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • ITEMS NOT PICKED UP THE DAY OF THE SALE – Packaging, shipping, and insurance on all items that MORPHY’S accepts for shipment to locations that can accept shipments will be made available as an added courtesy and at an additional cost. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. All applicable charges will be applied to the invoice. Shipping will be based on actual costs via FedEx, USPS, or other carriers required based upon the contents of the shipment. Packaging and insurance will vary in cost depending on the items on each invoice. All packages will be shipped with insurance. Standard items packed internally by MORPHY’s will ship seven to fourteen (7-14) business days after payment is received. Oversize and breakable items, which MORPHY’s will indicate on the invoice, will ship based upon the buyer’s arrangement with a 3rd party shipper. MORPHY’s cannot combine standard item shipments with oversize and breakable item shipments. Again, if any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • SHIPPING TERMS - MORPHY’S will ship items to the buyer at the listed address via FedEx or other carriers, FOB Denver, Pennsylvania or FOB Las Vegas, NV or FOB other auction locations. Any risk of loss or damage to the item(s) during transit via FedEx, or any other carrier, in excess of the insurance provided by or purchased from MORPHY’S, is at the risk of the buyer. Any additional insurance coverage should be purchased by the buyer through the carrier. Buyer releases MORPHY’s from any and all claims for loss or damage to any item during transit and agrees to pay all costs of defense, including attorney’s fees, for any claims brought against MORPHY’S for loss or damage occurring during transit. • INSURANCE - Shipping insurance is automatically added, which you can decline by contacting us and providing a signed waiver of insurance form. Insurance for all 3rd party shipments must be arranged through that carrier. Insurance provided or purchased through MORPHY’s applies only to shipments to the United States and Canada. Buyers must purchase their own insurance for shipments to other countries.

• INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS – MORPHY’S has the capability to ship to international bidders. By law, MORPHY’S cannot, and will not, declare lesser values for any international purchases and all shipments will include the invoice with purchase totals including the buyer’s premium and shipping cost. All international bidders are responsible for knowing their country’s laws on importing items and for paying all customs and duties on the items. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OVERSIZE ITEMS – Buyers will need to either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service for oversize items. As a general guideline, the following will indicate which packages apply, as they are of a certain weight, length, or dimensional size. • Dimensional size is length (the longest measurement) + (height x 2) + (width x 2).

Welcome to our Spring 2019 Gold Rush, Western, and Native American Art Auction This is our most diverse offering yet in this category. I am confident that our customers and clients will find a wonderful and historical array of items related to the Old West and American westward expansion for the most discerning of tastes. Included is a stunning collection of over a dozen rare 18th and 19th century tomahawks and a Blackfoot lance from the estate collection of the late California collector Mr. Don Euing. Don specialized in early colonial and frontier weapons and had a great eye for the rare and authentic. He only collected museum quality weapons, and these offered here are available for the first time on the collector market. There are two separate Indian arrows collected off of the Custer battlefield from the Dr. Frank Wagner cavalry museum collection. A comprehensive collection of some of the finest 19th century Plains, Southern Plains, and Southwest dolls to come to the market in recent years. A Pawnee painted buffalo robe, stunning Crow rifle scabbard and Crow buffalo hide shield, a very nice Sioux beaded pictorial vest and beautiful Sioux beaded blanket strip. Cowboy and Old West enthusiasts will find beautiful examples of finely woven prison made horsehair bridles, a variety of saddles, silver mounted spurs and custom bits by famous western makers such as, G.S. Garcia, Tapia, Hernandez, Morales, Larios and others. A stunning collection of high end Mexican sombreros and cowboy hats, Southwest sterling and turquoise jewelry, bunkhouse/ranch furniture, a full sized Concord stagecoach, saloon back bar bottles, a pair of Jo Mora Rodeo posters, Buffalo Bill,101 Ranch, and Tompkins Wild West advertising posters, and a Winchester advertising bullet display board. There are two very historic and important images also being offered. One is a cased tintype of bandit Butch Cassidy and the other is a previously unknown outdoor image of Morgan Earp, Doc Holliday, and Big Nose Kate. Firearms include Winchesters, Remingtons, Colts, Smith & Wessons, Merwin and Hulberts, various cowboy gun leather and accessories, as well as other frontier and Indian used firearms. There is also a nice selection of Gold Rush era gold quartz jewelry, western paintings, photographs, and bronzes. This will be followed by our coin-op and advertising auctions on Saturday and Sunday, and will be an epic 3 day event that you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss!

Great historical association to early Virginia City, Nevada and the famed Comstock Lode. Period engraving on the reverse reads: “Presented to (F?) Anderson by his Friends of the Sutro Tunnel, Feb 11, 1874”. The Sutro Tunnel is a drainage tunnel connected to the Comstock Lode in Northern Nevada. It begins at Virginia City, Nevada and empties approximately six miles southeast near the town of Dayton, Nevada. The tunnel was proposed by Adolph Sutro in 1860. He promoted the drainage tunnel to allow access to deeper mineral exploration in the Comstock. Flooding and inadequate pumps had inhibited some exploration until that time. By 1865, Sutro’s idea had gained the approval of state and federal legislation. The mining interests of the Comstock initially supported the project, but later opposed the idea. They feared that an alternate access point to the Comstock minerals would threaten their monopoly on the mining and milling of gold and silver in the Comstock. Nonetheless, Sutro formed the Sutro Tunnel Company, selling stock certificates to raise funds for its construction, which began in 1869. Financing also came from local miners motivated by the prospect of improved mine safety. This motivation was further advocated (perhaps exploited) by Sutro after the Yellowjacket mine disaster where dozens of miners were burned to death because they could not escape.

1091 - FRAMED CUSTER BATTLEFIELD ARROW COLLECTED BY 7TH CAVALRY OFFICER. Case: 19” x 37 -1/2”. Arrow: 26”. Circa 1870’s, Sioux arrow with iron tip collected by Lt. Luther Hare, 7th US Cavalry. During the June 1876 expedition to the Little Bighorn River, Lieutenant Hare was on detached service assisting Lt. Charles Varnum with the Crow Indian scouts, being appointed assistant on the evening of the 24th of June. During the siege on Reno’s Hill, he served as Maj. Marcus Reno’s adjutant, since Lt. Benjamin Hodgson had been killed during the retreat from the woods. This arrow was found in a burial tipi 48 hours after the battle by Lt. Hare along with a number of other ceremonial items. Arrow is interesting as it never had fletching, has long series of red painted stripes at the base, and was meant to be a ceremonial arrow used to accompany the deceased into afterlife. Hare entered West Point in 1870 and graduated 17 June 1874, joining the 7th Cavalry later that year. By the time of the Great Sioux War, he was a second lieutenant in Company K (Lt Godfrey Commanding), serving in the battalion commanded by Capt. Frederick Benteen. Hare later gave testimony at the subsequent Reno Court of Inquiry in 1879. Hare participated in the Nez Perce War (1877), Spanish-American War (Philippines Theater), and Philippine American War, notably in the recovery of captured US forces following the Battle of Pulang Lupa. He retired on medical disability in July 1903, but served several stints on active duty after that, retiring for the final time in February 1919. Luther Hare died at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C., and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. By direct acquisition from the Hare-Mason family to late Custer authority and author, John Carroll with a 1985 dated notarized letter attesting to such. This is the only known Luther Hare collected war trophy in private hands. Arrow is professionally framed and mounted along with an original albumen image of Lt. Hare in his cavalry dress uniform. Photo is signed on the reverse, “Yours sincerely, L.R. Hare, Capt. 7 Cavalry.” Complete Little Bighorn attributed arrows are extremely rare and most are in private collections or museums and rarely surface.

Circa 1870’s, originally from the collection of noted Custer historian John Carroll. Arrow was retrieved by the Sioux approximately one hour after the battle concluded. Contrary to popular belief, arrows were not just fired once and forgotten. Arrows took a tremendous amount of time to make, and they were collected to be used again after being shot in battle. A number of these collected arrows were given to Mr. Randy Steffen, owner of the Walking “S” Ranch in 1963 by the tribal council of the Oglala Sioux, presented by his close friend Charles Red Cloud, grandson of the Custer era Chief Red Cloud. It was one of a number of gifts given to Mr. Steffen in appreciation of his clothing drives to help the needy people of Pine Ridge Indian Agency. Accompanying the framed arrow is a notarized letter dated November 19, 1978, from Dorothy Ann Steffen to John Carroll attesting to the above oral history. Arrow is professionally mounted and framed.

We are assuming it was the Jones Brothers that owned in in 1910-11 where it was sold and became the Kit Carson Buffalo Ranch and combined circus from 1911-14; this poster mentions nothing about a circus, so we are assuming this is the scarce Jones Bros poster.

Offered is an impressive, old US Indian scout outfit that includes a Smith & Wesson American, a US Trapdoor, a .45-70 Prairie belt and a homemade holster fully decorated with glass beads and crossed American flags. The revolver is a Smith & Wesson 2nd Model American in .44 Russian with a 6” barrel. Serial No. 17128. Manufactured from 1872 to 1874. Original in blued finish which is now a smooth brown patina. Popular handgun in the Old West and is only about 100 numbers off of a documented Cole Younger gun. Grips are serial numbered to gun numbered 26865. Barrel legends are sharp and completely readable. Screws are fairly straight. Indexes and locks up correctly. Strong, pronounced rifling with minor black powder abrasion. Mismatched assembly numbers. Overall, dark smooth, chocolate brown patina with a homogeneous Western look. Includes a Smith & Wesson factory letter. The Trapdoor is a Model 1873 period cut-down rifle serial No. 67886 with 20-1/2” barrel, 1873 rifle rear sight, crudely fitted dovetail front sight, single band, half stock, decorated with oxidized brass tacks on stock, forearm and wrist. Buttplate was removed. Metal is all brown patina. Fine action. Strong, visibly rifled bore. Wood has some stress cracks and chips typical of Indian rough use. Some chipping to stock around lockplate. The plate and hammer have overall fine pitting and most of the US stamp is no longer visible. Appears as though someone wiped on some finish on hammer at one time. Buttplate is usually removed to scrape buffalo skins. Comes with an 1876 Prairie belt made of canvas with a heavy brass buckle and a homemade holster that is nearly fully decorated with glass beads. The base has typical Indian decoration while the flap is decorated with two crossed American flags and a border of blue beads. The Indian bead work found on this holster is a collector category unto its own, and when the early beadwork is combined with the Americana motif, makes this single piece highly collectible Americana/Folk Art extraordinaire. This outfit is typical what a US Indian Cavalry scout would be armed with. Great to display as an ensemble and definitely has the early Indian War eye appeal, especially with the colorful holster. It is believed that the Indian scouts that rode with the US Cavalry were the most important men on the mission and this outfit is typical of the customized weaponry and rig that an Indian scout would have worn during the 1880’s. A great collection that has been together a long time with striking eye appeal. This unique outfit deserves to stay together as a single display. Belt, 38”L.

LOT - 1166

1166 - (A) LOT OF 4: SAN CARLOS APACHE RESERVATION POLICE RIG INCLUDING GUN, BADGE, HOLSTER, BELT. Belt: 41”L. Lot consists of a factory nickel plated Model 1875 Remington with a barrel shortened to 5- 7/8”. A knife blade front sight has been reset into the front barrel, top of barrel has a strong Remington factory stamp. The Remington 1875 was manufactured from 1879 - 1889 and it is known that 639 nickel plated 1875’s were purchased by the U.S. Interior Department in 1883 for use of Indian Police on the western reservations. Early guns had .44 stamped on the grip, eventually moved to the frame, and finally the trigger bow. No stamp is present on this gun. It might have originally been on the grips, but the grips have been hand checkered - although scored might be more accurate. They are shy to metal on front strap, which may also indicate replacement grips. Factory lanyard ring. Six shot, single action. CONDITION: Needs some mechanical work as the hammer will not stay at full cock. Bore is fairly worn out. Accompanying gun is a leather cartridge belt with .44 caliber loops, soft leather, border LOT - 1167 tooled, California silver clip point buckle. Not a money belt. Besides border tooling has been carved with some large leaves on both billet and buckle edges. CONDITION: Two of the loops have split. Double loop holster is mail-order type sold by Sears and Montgomery Wards at the turn of the century and has been decorated with brads and conchos. Finally is an original six point badge with brass overlaid Indian head on silver. Each point is decorated and reads “Apache Police / San Carlos, Arizona” The back is stamped “CHIPRON STAMP CO./ 224 / W FIRST ST/ LOS ANGELES.” While there is a myriad of cheap fakes on the market, the originals all have six points and have the manufacturer stamp while reproductions have five points and no address. The Apache police at San Carlos was established in 1872 as a reservation for the Apache of southeast Arizona. Their first agent was John Clum, who is best remembered as the first mayor of Tombstone from 1877, where he was friends with the Earps and Doc Holliday and was active at the time of the gunfight at the OK Corral and the problems with the cowboys and the Earps, to the point where the cowboys tried to assassinate him. It was under Clum’s Indian Agent tenure that they captured the famous warrior Geronimo. This ensemble came to us in this configuration but with no literal history as to who, what, or when this outfit was assembled or used by. While the revolver shows typical hard Western usage and was favored by the Indian police, we have no records of the serial numbers. The timeframe for the holster and belt can be anywhere at the turn of the last century and we have no exact dating of the badge, although the company was established in 1892. That said, we wish we could offer more concrete information, but all items are indeed authentic and it is quite possible that gun was from earlier and passed down and reused through several generations, acquiring new holster and/or badge along the way. The set does have an excellent Western look. (Very Good). 4,000 - 6,000 1167 - (A)CASED PAIR OF EVANS PERCUSSION DERRINGERS. SN NSN. Caliber approximately .46. Scarce Derringer set made by J.E. Evans of Philadelphia. Bbl is marked J.E. Evans Phila.

This is a scarce Derringer set not often seen with well engraved hammer, lock and bbl breech, along with engraved German silver trigger guard and lock escutcheon plate. CONDITION: Guns are excellent overall and mechanically perfect. Metal is primarily original brown finish and striping to bbl. Stocks retain deep cross hatching and much of their original varnish. Case is lined with original green velvet with cut outs for mold, flasks, tools, caps, and cleaning rod. J.E. Evans was a prominent maker in Philadelphia known for his dueling pistols, rifles and derringers. From the Collection of Gary Johnson. (Excellent). 3,000 - 5,000 | April 12, 2019

1178 - EXCEPTIONAL ROBB CIGAR STORE INDIAN CHIEF. 28”L x 30”W x 78”T. This remarkable wood sculpture is one of the finest compositional examples you will find of this art form; the cigar store Indian trade sign. It is life size, and the subtle color palette the artist used looks even better with the patina of time on it. He is wearing a full headdress and what is probably a mountain lion mantle on his shoulders. Most cigar store sculptures are very static, whereas this Chief is relatively dynamically posed, canted forward with one leg raised on a block, while shielding his eyes from the Sun. In addition, the realism of the stoic face is a very real testament to the sculptor’s technical skill. His left hand is holding a stack of tempting tobacco products. A real find for the distinguished collector. Attributed to Samuel Robb with support from restorer Peter Deen. (Very Good Excellent). 70,000 - 100,000

1224 - ORIGINAL BUTCH CASSIDY TIN TYPE PHOTOGRAPH. Closed: 3-1/8”W x 3-3/4”T. Butch Cassidy, arguably one of the most famous of all Western outlaws, was immortalized in the motion picture “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” with Paul Newman playing Robert Leroy Parker, known as Butch Cassidy, and Robert Redford played Harry Alonzo Longabaugh, known the Sundace Kid. But long before Butch Cassidy had taken his alias and formed the gang known worldwide as the Wild Bunch or the Hole In The Wall Gang, his life of crime had been well underway. This original tin type in its original gutta percha (Hinge Broken), is a photograph of four dapper young men posed regally in a studio sans any visible weapons. The character seated to the right is none other than Robert Leroy Parker as a young outlaw pictured with three acquaintances. Cassidy, as we will now refer to him, rode with a gang including his friends, Fred and George McCarty and Matt Warner, who held up their first bank in 1889 in Telluride, Colorado. Cassidy landed in prison for two years in 1894 and then, of course, went onto infamy with the Wild Bunch which formed upon his release from prison. As heroically portrayed in the motion picture, it is believed that Cassidy and Sundance met their end at the hands of the military in Bolivia during a botched bank robbery. This is undoubtedly the only known image of Robert Leroy Parker, known as Butch Cassidy, as an adult prior to his imprisonment in 1894 and formation of the Hole in the Wall Gang. It is interesting to note that Butch Cassidy had an affinity for bowler hats and is wearing one in this photo and is oft seen photographed wearing bowler hats during his Hole in the Wall Gang period. Some might refer to this as his “rookie photo.” Open, 6-1/2”W x 3-3/4”T. (Very Good). 10,000 - 15,000 | April 12, 2019

Circa 1970’s, this custom leather saddle was designed by Roy Rogers. The sister, and inspiration for this saddle is seen on the original 1950’s lunchbox with Roy’s plastic saddle on it. Those saddles were produced by All Western Plastics headquartered in Lusk, Wyoming. It is widely known this was Roy’s favorite Saddle, and most photographed plastic saddle he owned and made famous in merchandise and images. Roy’s good friend Art Emr loved it and asked Roy if he could have a copy made. Roy said, “I’m honored and flattered that you want a saddle like mine, but let’s make one that is your’s alone.” Instead of a direct copy of the original saddle that had only the star accents, they added hearts to the the new saddle so it was different from Roy’s just a bit. Textan was commissioned to make it out of leather as All American Plastics was now out of business. Manufactured in patriotic red, white, and blue leather, with four red American eagles, two blue stars, red slotted conchos with red latigos, and a 16” seat. It’s a stunning setup with large 24” multi-colored tapaderos, the original red, white, and blue wool-felt corona saddle pad, red, white, and blue cinch, matching breast collar, reins, and bridle with snaffle bit. Included is the life size cutout of Roy Rogers that pairs very nicely with the saddle, 26”W x 73”T. A very impressive Roy Rogers related saddle that is truly one-of-a-kind.

1261 - (A) SMITH & WESSON 2ND MODEL AMERICAN WITH TOM MIX RIG - BOHLIN MADE SILVER. 46”L. The pistol is a Smith & Wesson 2nd Model American single action revolver in .44 caliber. Barrel has been cut to 4 - 3/4”. Exhibits scroll engraving and retains approximately 90% of its reapplied nickel finish. Has a pair of Mexican eagle carved stag grips (left side). Assembly number on latch and cylinder is 795. CONDITION: Very good grips, shy to metal; replacements. Factory stamps on top are partially missing from where it was cut off, balance readable. Strong, clean rifled bore with light fouling and slightly frosted. Revolver barely stays in cocked position and requires two hands to operate. Needs mechanical attention. There is no provenance with this revolver or any photographic documentation putting it in Tom’s hand. That said, it is still a handsome, early 1870’s Western gun, period shortened with nice engraving and tight hinge. It is housed in a turn of the century type Mexican style holster and cartridge belt. The cartridge belt measures 3-1/4” wide with leather loops. The holster is an outside stitched single loop open top holster with retaining snap. The outside leather of the holster features gold embroidery, as does the border of the cartridge belt. The belt is attributed to Tom Mix due to the silver engraved “TM” plaque on band, and the buckle set is beautifully engraved with flowers and vines with “TM”. Has the very early “BOHLIN MADE CALIF HOLLYWOOD / STERLING”. It is a documented fact that Bohlin and Mix became fast friends in the 1920’s, and it was Tom Mix that convinced Bohlin to open up a saddle and silver shop in Hollywood. The Bohlin hallmark is one of the earliest types. The rig is in very good condition with just some loose stitching from band to throat. It is probable that Bohlin presented Mix with sterling silver accents that went on his regular holster. (Very Good). 2,000 - 4,000 | April 12, 2019

1373 - 1881 DOC HOLLIDAY AND MORGAN EARP “PICNIC” TINTYPE PHOTOGRAPH. Tintype: 3-1/2” x 5”. Eye appealing early tintype, showing Doc Holliday and Morgan Earp with family and a group of people, with good clarity and uncommon large size. The upper right of the photograph’s back side is very faintly marked 4/24/81, which, if not added at a later date by coincidence would give cause for the pictured gathering being as April 24th was Morgan Earp’s birthday. Accompanied by a stamped advertising envelope marked “Erwin Baer Photographer Prescott, AZ” in which the photo was found and an early page of the Sacramento Weekly Bee offering an account of the gunfight at O.K. Corral on October 26, 1881, the page itself dated three days later. Also included is a copy of forensic facial analysis done by Kent Gibson in 2018. Facial recognition strongly supports the likelihood that the picture does indeed show John Henry “Doc” Holliday, his common law wife Kate Horony, aka Big Nose Kate, and Morgan Earp. We believe Morgan’s wife, Louisa Earp, is also in the image. Although not mentioned in the forensic report the likelihood that she is sitting behind her husband in the photograph is very strong, given the identities of the other three people in the image. Other documented images of Louisa Earp, bear an almost exact resemblance to the woman in question. This is likely the only group image that Doc Holliday ever sat for that has been authenticated. This is also most likely one of his last photographs taken in adulthood before he died in 1887. At this stage in his life he was beginning to show the advanced stages of tuberculosis. Therefore, Doc would look markedly different in this image from his few documented younger photos. Doc’s tuberculosis started after he graduated from dental school in his early 20’s. As he progressed in age, until the end of his life at 36, his physical Louisa Earp appearance changed drastically. He lost most of his hair, became increasingly grey, gaunt and sallow in appearance, and looks in this photograph nothing like his early images of a robust dark and strong man. We believe the piece to Big Nose Kate Morgan Earp be authentic based on evidence provided by the consignor. (Very Good). 10,000 - 15,000 Doc Holliday | April 12, 2019

1374 - ALAMEDA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA 1870’S LAND DEED LEDGER WITH SIX TRANSACTIONS OF LAND TO JOHN COFFEE HAYS - 1ST CAPTAIN OF THE TEXAS RANGERS. 12-1/2” x 8-1/2”. This book is entitled “Land on Broadway Street and San Jose Avenue, City of Alameda, County of Alameda, State of California” with a stamp by the agent. There are two interesting facets: there are 12 one to three page entries dealing with land purchases and sales by John Coffee Hays and/or his wife, Susan. John Coffee Hays is best remembered as the Captain of the Texas Rangers from 1836 to 1848. This put him in Texas, in charge of the Texas Rangers, at the time of Texas independence, the Goliad Massacre, The Battle of San Jacinto and the most remembered, the defeat of the Alamo; all in 1836. He remained captain through the Mexican-American War in which California was absorbed into the United States as part of the treaty. He became an Indian Agent in 1849 through the territories of New Mexico and Arizona. Upon retiring he moved to California, where he spent the last 20+ years of his lives. He married Susan Calvert in 1847 and between then, did a great deal of land trading in the 1860’s and 1870’s. One of the more interesting aspects of this book is the dispersion of the famous Rancho San Antonio; 16,000 acres rented to Luis Peralta, for his valiant service in the Mexican Army, and the land was granted to him in 1820 by the last Spanish Governor of California. He eventually divided this land between his four sons but problems resulted when California became part of the United states after the 1848 war with Mexico; the sons continued to live there and a large hacienda built by one of the sons in 1870 is still there. By the time the last son died, they had lost all but 23 acres of the original land grant. You can still visit the hacienda today. There is legal paperwork at the beginning of this book which details the dispersment of this land, beginning in 1820 to the 1874 LOT - 1376 LOT - 1377 court challenge United States of America to Antonio Peralta by President U.S. Grant recorded September 15th, 1874. Nine pages to tracing the various court cases detailing the United States raping of the Rancho San Antonio. This is some interesting book dealing with the early post-Mexican-American War land deals. If you are interested in California history, you will love this book as this history unfolds before you in a contemporary to the time perspective.
