    [Texas Rangers]. Pair of Photographs of Prohibition Era Texas Rangers Including Captain Tom R. Hickman. The first, silver print, measuring 5.5" x 3.5", features eight men, most of whom are armed with Colt revolvers, two of which carry rifles. The man standing third from left in white shirt and tie, facing slightly to his right, appears to be Ranger Captain Thomas R. Hickman. The second, also a silver print, measuring 3.5" x 5.5", shows three men posing in front of what appear to be tents. The man in the middle, leaning on the shoulder of the fellow to his right, is wearing a classic period gun rig. The young man to his left appears to be wearing the campaign hat and shirt of a member of the U.S. Army. Both photographs show silvering in the darker areas.

    Thomas R. Hickman (1886-1962) joined the Texas Rangers in 1919 and by 1920 was serving as captain of Emergency Company No. 2. In February 1921 he was made captain of Company "B." Spending the majority of the time in North Texas enforcing the law in the towns that sprung up during the oil boom, he also had a hand in the Oklahoma boundary dispute. Resigning from the Rangers in 1935 following a disagreement with the governor, Hickman returned to Gainesville, Texas, where he served as a deputy. Hickman was also involved in the rodeo, having been a member of the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch Show when he was a young man.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
