    An Important 10 kt. Gold Buffalo Bill's Wild West Presentation Award. A substantial six-pointed star, measuring 1.5" x 2.125". Elaborately engraved: "1/4-mile race between American and Indian girl at Manchester Race Course/ England/ Friday March 30, 1888/ from Buffalo Bill's Wild West/ Cody Salsbury."

    The occasion was a special celebration held by the show's performers just before the show packed up and departed back to the United States. It was offered as a thank you to the citizens of Manchester, thousands of whom had flocked to the show's performance there. No admission was charged. As yet our research failed to disclose the identities of the performers who participated in the race, but it seems likely that the winner was Della Farrell, as the award was passed down through her and Johnny Baker's family.

    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.
