    Description

    William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody: A Striking Original Cabinet Photograph in Superb Condition. This uncommon image of Cody was taken by famed New York photographer Jose Mora late in 1872. Just months before, Buffalo Bill had been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his gallantry and skill in a sharp skirmish in Nebraska. The textures of Cody's soft Stetson and his beaver-trimmed buffalo-hide coat, the clear and piercing gaze of his dark eyes, and the charisma that emanates from this handsome pose -- all work together to make this one of the best pictures ever made of the scout, Buffalo Bill. And this is the best print of this photograph we have come across. You see Cody as audiences would soon come to see him.
