    TERRIFIC CABINET CARD OF JUDGE ROY BEAN IN FRONT OF THE JERSEY LILLY - "THE LAW WEST OF THE PECOS." Wonderful cabinet card depicting Judge Roy Bean standing outside his saloon/courtroom with a group of local lawmen (one of whom wears a Colt single action and a large-frame double action revolver, as well as a suspension badge), an unknown dignitary, local Mexicans, a few young children, and what appears to be a legless woman sitting on a bicycle. Photographed circa 1890 by an unknown photographer. Image shows some soiling along edges, with the usual wear and smudging to the photographer's mount. Outstanding and strange, this Judge Roy Bean cabinet card is a must-have!

    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.
