    PRISTINE HAND-TINTED HAYNES CABINET OF CHIEF WHITE BULL. Nephew of Sitting Bull, Miniconjou Sioux Chief White Bull fought at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, and later became a judge in the Court of Indian Offenses. This magnificent portrait is in exceptional condition - clean, sharp, and fresh, with vibrant colors. White Bull is pictured here as a young man, with pomaded and braided hair, a quill vest, a presidential peace medallion around his neck and feathers in his hair. He also wears gold earrings and arm bands, and his braids are wrapped in fur. Photograph measures 3¾" x 5½" and is affixed to Haynes' St. Paul photographer's mount (4¼" x 6½"), which advertises a list of "Colored Cabinets of Noted Indians" on verso. The entire image has been artfully and precisely hand colored with dramatic results - this striking image should be displayed prominently!

    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.
