    Description

    J. W. "Captain Jack" Crawford: A Rare Pose in an Early, 1881-Dated Signed Photo. A wonderful image of a youthful Captain Jack, it depicts him in full Western attire, including beaded moccasins and a long, beaver and fringe-trimmed buckskin coat. His right hand supports a Winchester rifle, while in his left hand he holds a massive gold nugget. At the top Crawford has titled the image "Prospecting". Excellent condition, with strong image. Minor small stain along left edge as shown. Verso with the imprint of Bennett and Brown photographers, Santa Fe, New Mexico. While it often seems that Crawford was the most-photographed Western celebrity, this most unusual pose and stand-out content make this one of the finest Captain Jack photos one might hope to acquire. 4.25" x 6.5".
