    RARE BUFFALO BILL/SITTING BULL CALENDAR "COMPLIMENTS OF D.F. BARRY". Familiar 4" x 5½"full-length sepia image of Buffalo Bill and Sitting Bull, circa 1903. Here we have Sitting Bull in full costume, with a magnificent eagle feather headdress, standing next to William Cody, also dressed in his Wild West Show finery (including thigh-high riding boots and a richly-embroidered satin shirt). The photo, in very fine condition, has been affixed to a large mat board (approximately 6¼" x 10½"), with a small 1903 calendar stapled to the lower portion of the board. The calendar is missing pages for the months January through March 1903. At the upper edge of the matt board, Barry has penned: "Compliments of D.F. Barry." Image bears Barry's copyright ink stamp at lower left corner. Mat board is blind stamped with Barry's imprint at lower left corner, and on verso a second ink stamp reads "D.F. Barry, West Superior, Wis." Also on verso in Barry's hand: "No 3 Programme p. 9." A small half-tone reproduced image of the photo on the front has been attached to the back. Red ribbon hanger. A few minor matte board creases do not detract from this very rare item. Extremely desirable. From The Chris Kortlander Collection

    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.
