    EARLY Wm. F. CODY "BUFFALO BILL" PORTRAIT - CARTE DE VISITE - ca. 1880. This is a great early souvenir portrait of William F. Cody wearing one of his famous Wild West Show outfits with fur lining. The light reflects of his flowing locks of hair, and the image has a rich tone, with good contrast. The thin card is impression marked "Buffalo Bill" and measures 2.5"x 4". There is a very small discoloration to the top center left, and the left corner is very lightly bumped, but the condition is generally very good. A nice portrait of a famous Western personality.

    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.
