DescriptionExtremely Rare Sixth Plate Tintype of Native American and African American Cowboys, ca. 1860-1870. Images of Indian cowboys are rare, as are images of black cowboys. Here we have the best of both worlds: both in the same photo! The two young men seem ill at ease as they pose side by side for their portrait. The Indian cowboy wears typical cowboy gear - heavy slacks, colorful neckerchief and fringed buckskin jacket. The young black cowboy wears his best three-piece suit. This photo has been placed in a Lucite casing for protection. Image measures approximately 2.25" x 3.25".
Condition: Very fine, light rush verso.

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.
