    UNCOMMON CABINET IMAGE OF COMANCHE CATTLE BUTCHERING. As was typical with many native tribes, the men did the hunting and the women dressed the meat. Here we see a group of men and boys on horseback, watching several Comanche women as they butcher a large steer near Anadarko, Oklahoma. As the women work, several dogs dart in to snap up bits of fresh meat. Image measures approximately 5½" x 4" and is affixed to Irwin's slightly larger photo mount. Water stains affect the extreme upper right corner of the image, and there is significant loss to the same corner of the mount, as well as a few lesser chips along mount edges and corners; the photograph, however remains sharp, clear, and vivid. On verso in ink: "Comanche Indians butching (sic) beef near Anadarko Okla."

    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.
