    MAJESTIC BARRY PORTRAIT OF CHIEF RUNNING ANTELOPE. Known for his great oratory and diplomatic skills, Chief Running Antelope was the only Native American ever to be depicted on U.S. paper money - the 1899 $5 Silver Certificate. Unfortunately, because his Sioux headdress was too tall for the engraving, the artist replaced it with a Pawnee headdress, causing much upset among both tribes. This impressive bust image measuring approximately 6" x 8½" reveals a defiant Running Antelope wearing a striped shirt, vest, and a decorative silver neckerchief pin. Blindstamped at lower left "Copyright by D.F. Barry," with "Barry Photo" penned in white ink to the right. Housed in Barry's tri-fold presentation folder, also blindstamped "Barry" beneath the mounted image. Barry's short, printed bio of the subject has been pasted to the verso of the folder. All in exceptional condition.
