    Description

    Nashville "Buckskin" Frank Leslie: A Rare 1881 Document Bearing his Signature. One of old Tombstone's most colorful characters, Leslie was a sometime bartender and scout, and more than once was involved in violence, doubtless on both sides of the law. His legendary gunbelt with its engraved silver buckle is also offered elsewhere in this auction.

    Offered here is his signed voter registration form, dated December 5, 1881. The rest of the form is filled in by Deputy A. E. Ludlow, who spelled Frank's first name "Nashville"- with an "h". This is a common error, but in fact, as his rare signature shows, it was actually "Nasville." Beautiful condition, 8" x 7", and nicely matted and custom framed to 11" x 15.5".
