    Description

    Geronimo- Incredible Signed Sepia Cabinet Card Photo Sepia 6" x 8" cabinet card, undated, depicts the Apache leader (1829-1909) in Western wear, including a neckerchief. The card is signed in pencil on the mount beneath the full length, striking image. In fine condition. The item includes over a dozen pages of authenticating files. Known examples published in respectable articles are present as well as a notarized letter from the former owner explaining provenance. The best known of all Apache leaders, he forcibly resisted the internment of 4000 of his people on a reservation at San Carlos, subsequently surrendering then escaping from white control on several occasions. In 1886, the local US commander promised him exile in Florida and a return to Arizona if he surrendered. The promise was not kept, and he and his followers were put to hard labor. In his old age, he became a public figure. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
