Putnam and Captain Phillips both proudly displaying Colt Single-Action Army revolvers and Winchester rifles. Specifically, Putnam holds a lever action Winchester Model 94 rifle and Phillips a Winchester Model 1873. Damage to corners and edge of card mount, not affecting the albumen. The Rangers are identified in pencil on the mount.

At top, also in pencil, "(Creed Taylor Book) No 00". During this period (circa 1907) Hunter sold his manuscript on the life of Creed Taylor to James T. DeShields who later published it under the title, Tall Men with Long Rifles. Provenance: George Jackson Collection.

    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.
