Description

    RARE ARMED TEXAS AND NATIONAL RAILROAD POLICEMEN OR POSSE - BOUDOIR CARD - ca. 1890-1900.
    This is a rare outdoor image of a fully armed compliment of Texas and National Railroad Policemen, or related posse. The men pictured are all armed, most with both a shotgun or rifle and a holstered pistol. The majority of the pistols are Colt Single Action Army Models. This is an unmarked boudoir card which measures 4.75"x 7.75". The corners of the card are clipped, and worn, with fading throughout the image and a light tone. Although this image is unmarked, it came from an Ardmore, Oklahoma scrapbook. The initials "T&N" denoting the short track line Texas and National Railroad Co. can be seen on the side of the train in the background on both cars, along with "O.H.&S.A.". The Texas and National railroad was an obscure short track line. An early photograph of Texas Railroad Policeman, or a posse that is this well armed is difficult for collectors to obtain.

    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.
