    Outstanding 1912 Image of Oklahoma Lawmen Bud Ballew and Buck Garrett. As a young man, Buck Garrett was a gunman for wealthy Wyoming cattle barons. He then became a deputy US marshal and is credited with hunting down and killing Bill Dalton, the last of the Dalton Gang. Following this, Garrett served as Sheriff of Carter County, Oklahoma (1911 - 1922). Garrett was assisted in his dangerous work by Sheriff Bud Ballew, who also operated a cattle ranch and speculated in oil leases in the Ardmore area. Ballew feared no man and was credited with as many as eight killings during the course of his career. Fine three-quarter length image of Bud and Buck shaking hands, each wearing a sheriff's badge and an enormous hat. Image measures 4.5" x 6.25". An excellent display piece! From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Very fine.

    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.
