    Description

    Cabinet Card Image of Osage Medicine Man Little Soldier and Wife, circa 1890s. An unknown photographer captured this studio image of Osage medicine man Little Soldier and his wife. They are seated wearing traditional attire; he with a richly appliquéd shirt and she with many long beaded necklaces and numerous earrings. He hold a rifle in one hand and a turban-like headdress with a feather in the back. Identified on verso as "Osage Indians. Little Soldier & wife. Medicine man." Small area of image loss at Little Soldier's forehead is not due to wear or damage; apparently a drop of a corrosive chemical spattered on the original negative.

    Condition: Light age toning. Moderate wear to mount edges and corners with a heavy crease at lower left. Very good.

    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.
