    BUFFALO BILL'S WILD WEST SHOW PERFORMER TRICK SHOOTING WITH 1873 WINCHESTER RIFLE - SET OF TWO CABINET CARDS - ca. 1885-95. This wonderful set of two gold-rimmed cabinet cards shows a Wild West Show trick shooter posing for the photographer, as he would shoot during the performance. Identified on the back in ink as, "Gels uncle who was with Buffalo Bill", this cabinet card is marked by Perkinson of New York, NY in gold. The shooter is displaying a number of medals, and a pistol in a Native American Indian beaded holster with a flashy show belt. The image has spotting and fading throughout, and the color is mellow sepia. The cabinet cards are 6.5" x 4.25" and in good condition. A great set of Buffalo Bill trick shooter photographs with a desirable weapon display.
