    Description

    The following 48 lots are highlights from the well-known and respected Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley collection of the late hobbyists Edward C. Gillette. Particularly impressive is the selection of Buffalo Bill's Wild West posters, one of the largest and finest such offerings ever seen at auction. Ed Gillette was a particularly condition-conscious collector, and that is reflected in the quality of these items.
    PLEASE NOTE: A NUMBER OF GILLETTE COLLECTION PIECES ARE ALSO IN SUNDAY'S INTERNET SESSON

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
