    UNUSUAL HAND-TINTED CARTE DE VISITE OF CHE-NOPE, SAC & FOX BRAVE. CDVs of Indians are rare; hand-tinted ones even more so. Here, photographer A.W. Barker of Ottawa, Kansas, has captured Sac and Fox warrior Che-nope in all his glory. The elderly brave wears an impressive bear-claw necklace with a presidential peace medallion at center, and holds a large eagle feather fan. Che-nope's shirt sleeve and the blanket wrapped around his waist have been hand-tinted, as has the feather in his hair. Chipping and wear at edges and corners of mount, affecting image at upper right corner only. A unique and desirable item!
