    "Frenchie" Fronahall: A CDV Photo Showing Him with Ball and Chain. A most unusual image, with vintage identification "Frenchie" in pencil on front, and "Fronahall" on verso. We have not been able to find any information on Fronahall, but perhaps he was connected to Quantrill or the James gang. The CDV is by a Jefferson City, Missouri photographer. Good condition with overall aging.

    Please note: This image appears in the book Bloody Bill Anderson: The Short, Savage Life of a Civil War Guerilla, by Albert E. Castel and Thomas Goodrich (Stackpole Books, 1998, page 14), where it is identified as being of Jim Anderson, brother of "Bloody Bill" Anderson. It states that the photo is reproduced courtesy of Carl Breihan.

    Our additional research determined this image was originally published in Breihan's book The Killer Legions of Quantrill on page 144 attributed to Mr. Zink. Moreover the investigation was unable to find any other reference of "Frenchie Fronahll."

    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.
