*RARE PROTOTYPE JOHNSON SEMI-AUTO MILITARY RIFLE. Cal. 30-06. SN MR3. Early prototype for the famous Johnson rifle, one of the first three built for Johnson by a company named “Taft-Peirce” of Woonsocket, RI in 1938. These three rifles were numbered MR1 thru MR3 and were made with single column magazines of either five or eight shots. One of the rifles was made to minimum tolerances, another to maximum tolerances and a third to middle of the road tolerances. We do not know which one we have. All three were chambered for 30-06 and marked on top of the receiver “PROOF MODEL” which is exactly how our rifle is marked. This information was obtained from the book Johnson Rifles and Machine Guns by Bruce N. Canfield. This specific rifle is pictured on page 40 of the same book in its original commercial configuration. This rifle is described as having a 20” rnd bbl in a 1-pc walnut stock with pierced metal hand guard, integral with the receiver. It has a winged military-style front sight and the long Johnson 1,000 meter stamped metal rear sight. The wood is very distinctive in its grain patterns and readily identifiable in the picture. It now has a light parkerized finish on the bbl & receiver with blue trigger guard. It is apparent that it was experimented with, as there are several arsenal type repairs and fills to the forestock. The top of the receiver is marked “JOHNSON AUTOMATICS / SEMI-AUTO. 30-06 / PROOF MODEL” and the right rear of the receiver is stamped “MR-3” with a strange proof mark above it. It is accompanied by six original 5-rnd magazines and seven books relating to military rifles & machine guns, one by Canfield (above) and six by Johnson himself or Johnson & Haven. The titles are Automatic Weapons of the World, Rifles and Machine Guns, Ammunition, Automatic Arms, For Permanent Victory and Practical Marksman ship. CONDITION: Fine to very fine. Retains an even light gray/green parkerized finish over the bbl & receiver. Stock has a hairline in front of the magazine well, otherwise retains a dark oil finish with light soil and a few light nicks & dings. Magazines all show light to moderate wear with some fine surface rust. Bright shiny bore. There is a hairline crack at the right rear of the receiver in line with the rear receiver pin.

WEBLY MODEL 1897 SINGLE SHOT HUNTING RIFLE. Cal 400/360 . SN 13453. This beautiful rifle was retailed by “Joseph Lang & Son 102 New Bond St, London. W” and is 1 of only 5 known. Jonathan Kirton in his second edition of THE BRITISH FALLING BLOCK BREECHLOADING RIFLE on page 265, states that “ rifles with this action are exceedingly rare; after years of searching the writer has only been able to confirm the existence of three surviving examples”. Of these examples, only one other is known to have its original barrel in its original chambering. This is the only known example with scalloped action, the others have squareback actions.

The serial number appears on the left side of the lower tang is stamped in the top tang channel of the stock, on the inside of the toe of the buttplate and on all of the screws. The receiver is typically engraved by Samuel J. Hoggson and silver-plated. The top of the receiver is engraved in a ribbon “Gen. G.M. Dodge 7th Regt. Ill.”. The balance of the receiver has Hoggson style engraving, consisting of his usual patterns of foliate arabesque patterns on the sides and sideplates and an elk on the left sideplate. The front flats on both sides have his trademark large blossoms and both sides of the receiver have his rope pattern borders. The engraving patterns have punch-dot background. The presentation was applied at a later date, after the war, when Gen. Dodge attended a GAR meeting where all the attendees were requested to bring their rifles.

Grenville Mellen Dodge, born 12 April 1831, was a graduate civil and military engineer in 1850. He moved to Illinois and was employed building railroads for the Illinois Central and other railroad companies. In 1854 he moved to Council Bluffs, IA and organized a bank, and at the same time organized the Council Bluffs Guards. At the outbreak of the Civil War he went to Washington to obtain equipment for his troop but was turned down, but made an impression on the military who offered him a captaincy, which he declined. He returned to Iowa and was commissioned a colonel and authorized to raise a regiment. He not only raised an infantry regiment but also a company of artillery. He and his troops were immediately enrolled and saw action shortly thereafter in Missouri. He was engaged in almost continuous action with the Army of the Tennessee on the Western front throughout most of the war and rose to the rank of Major General. After the war ended he was assigned to all the Western territories to put down the Indian problems from the Arkansas river in the South to the Yellowstone in the North. He participated in many campaigns until a temporary peace was reached with the Indians. He resigned in 1866 and returned to building railroads and is generally credited with being the “Father of the United States Transcontinental Railroad” and numerous other shorter lines. He also consulted on the building of the Russian transcontinental railroad through Siberia to the Pacific Ocean. Gen. Dodge served a term in Congress and turned down an appointment as Secretary of War by President Grant. There are bronze statues of him in the State of Iowa and in Washington, DC. This rifle was consigned by someone who lives near Council Bluffs, IA where the rifle turned up.

Our rifle additionally has military inspector marks in the usual place on the right bbl flat where it meets the receiver. These marks are “CGC” without periods and an “H” on the frame and bbl. The stock additionally has the outline of a very faint cartouche on the right wrist. What is most unusual is that the engraving was not completed. Two lines of border rope pattern were only half finished. This is explained in research conducted by Guns of History, Inc. wherein it was learned that in June of 1863 an order for 240 Henry rifles was placed for the War Dept. by Col. LaFayette C. Baker. The War Dept. reduced the initial order to 120 pieces. It is recounted that Winchester was unable to immediately fill the order, but immediately shipped 13 boxes of 6 rifles each to the Washington D.C. Arsenal in care of Col. George Ramsey. According to the records these rifles were inspected and were in the 2100 to 2300 serial number range.

These first 78 rifles were taken directly from the production line in whatever form they were being produced, some were plated & engraved. Our rifle is apparently one of those first 78 rifles received by Col. Ramsey. The “CGC” inspector mark, without periods, appears to have been the initials of Charles G. Curtis, who was recorded as inspecting Henry rifles during 1862 thru 1863, so the only Henry rifles he could have inspected was the first shipment of 78 rifles. These first Henrys were initially intended to equip special units that were to be used for protection details for President Lincoln and others, including Gen. Dodge. General J.G. Blunt is quoted as having stated: “if Dodge can have an escort service and a Henry, I can too.” So he formed his own small unit and armed them with Baker Henrys, and selected one for himself with engraving and gold plating, serial number 2378. He thought he had outdone Dodge because Dodge’s Henry was only “Silver Plated”. Accompanied by a 16 page booklet “SHORT SKETCH / of the / SERVICES OF / MAJOR GENERAL GRENVILLE MELLEN DODGE” as reprinted from “A HISTORY OF POTTAWATTAMIE COUNTY, IOWA” and a small oilcloth covered book “THE BATTLE OF ATLANTA” by General Dodge.

CONDITION: Very fine. Bbl retains 15-20% blue, turning plum, mostly in the sheltered areas and in the barrel gullets. Balance is a medium gray patina. Receiver retains about 90% strong original silver plating and has a couple of nicks on the front left. Stock is sound and retains about 75% original varnish with usual light handling and use marks and the buttplate about 30-35% thin silver plating. It has a very dark, worn bore. Mechanics are fine. 4-51516 JR890 (45,000-65,000)

He was discharged at Springfield, IL March 21,1866.

Additional information regarding this rifle was also found in the Company and Regimental books of the 3rd U.S. Veterans Volunteer Infantry in the National Archives under record group 94, entry 112.

WONDERFUL IDENTIFIED PRESENTATION CIVIL WAR USED HENRY RIFLE. Cal. 44 RF Henry. SN 9373. Standard Henry rifle with 24-1/4” oct bbl with integral magazine tube. It has German silver blade front sight with Henry ladder rear sight, walnut stock with factory sling swivels and a faint “Henry Bump” below the stock swivel. It has a brass buttplate with trap. The serial number is present on the left side of the lower tang, stamped inside the top tang channel in the buttstock and inside the toe of the buttplate. The left sideplate is engraved in script “Presented To / Capt. John A. Smith / Co. E. 7th Reg’t. Ill. Inf. / by the / Troops of His Command / for / Outstanding Leadership and Valor”. Accompanied by a ring binder of extensive research including Capt. Smith’s military record and the history of the 7th Illinois.

Company E of the 7th was recruited near Atlanta, IL and mustered into service April 25, 1861. They fought a number of battles & skirmishes throughout the Western command, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi and other states up & down the Mississippi River. It is not known when, but the 7th Illinois purchased their own Henry rifles of a cost of $50.00 each. They re-enlisted as a unit at Pulaski, TN on December 22, 1863, went home on 30 day furlough and were re-assembled on Feb. 18, 1864 and immediately were engaged patrolling the Tennessee River in Kentucky & Alabama. In October 1864 they fought the Battle of Allatoona Pass, Georgia where 1,500 Union soldiers were attacked by 6,000 Confederates under command of Gen. French. In that battle 38 Union soldiers were killed and 67 wounded while the Confederates lost 2,200 killed & wounded. This action was singled out for particular praise by Maj. Gen. W.T. Sherman. The rifle we have here was not the original rifle Capt. Smith purchased along with the rest of his company, but was one presented to him by his troops at a later date in the war. They reportedly purchased the rifle with their own funds, as a group, had it inscribed and presented it to the Captain. Captain Smith was mustered out 7/25/1861 at Nashville, TN, and died 1/15/1917 at Jacksonville, IL. Also accompanies is a copy of a Brady photograph of several NCO’s, members of the 7th Illinois with their colors and Henry rifles.

CONDITION: Good to very good. Traces of original finish remain on the bbl, being mostly a light gray/brown patina. Receiver has slightly worn edges and a ding or two on the top, with light scratches around the screws and retains a medium mustard patina. Stock has replaced chips near the top tang and a missing chip at the rear of the top tang and retains most of a very old refinish. Mechanics are fine. Has a strong bore with fine pitting. A couple of stock screws are replacement. 4-51517 JR889 (25,000-40,000)

Hamon is a Chugai base with bits of temper all over the blade, almost appears to be (Hitatsura) full temper. CONDITION: Some surface rust and spidering in some areas of the blade. Appears that it would take a polish. Nakago has one Megukiana. Nakagojri is single beveled. “Signature reads, “Nagasone Oki Sato Nyudo Kotetsu”. Kotetsu is a very important and rare swordsmith.” – HOWEVER, WE CANNOT AND WILL NOT GUARANTEE THE SIGNATURE AS GENUINE. 2) Wakizashi blade: 17-3/4” long with medium Sori, Chu Kissaki. Hamon is Midare Ji-Hada is indistinct. Nakago has one Megukiana with a rounded Nakagojire. CONDITION: Blade has two nicks, one at the point but very small. No major openings. Appears that it would take a polish. Nakago is signed and dated but very faint.

Bizen No Kuni Osufune Hichibeinojo Sukysada Saku. The date is very faint, but this smith made most of his swords between 1652 & 1655 in the Shinto period. The sword fittings on Katana and Wakizashi are matching. The Tsubas are round Shakudo with gold floral appliques. One applique is missing on the Katana. Matching Fuchi and Kashiras are Shakudo with gold birds, figures with a bow and arrow. Menukis are Shakudo with gold or brass, which are figures of warriors. The Tsuka displays old Sami with black silk wrapping which has become old and starting to fray and break in places, should be re-wrapped. Saya is ribbed 4” down from the throat. The rest of the Saya is reddish-brown with floral designs. Th Katana Saya is missing the butt cap. Both Sayas are unfortunately split in places. Comes with an old black lacquer sword stand decorated with bugs and butterflies and is in good condition.

I believe these swords are well worth restoration and are a handsome and important signed Daisho. 4-51045 PQ2 (10,000-15,000)

Nakago is signed Tachi-Mei Hizen Nokuni Omi No Kami Tadayoshi. CONDITION: Blade appears to be in very good condition but needs to be cleaned as there is a dried oil film on it. Some shallow nicks along the Ha-cutting edge. Appears that it would take a polish. 2) Wakizashi: 20-5/8” blade with a Suguha Hamon medium Kissaki. Nakagojri is single-beveled (Kata-Yamagata) with Nakaganna. Ji-Hada appears to be Mokume. Nakago is signed Omi No Kami Tadayoshi.

The Daisho set is mounted with sword furniture depicting Samurai at the battle of the Uji River(?) Both Tsubas are signed and also have a gold cartouche under the signature. Fuchi and Kashira depict Samurai crossing the river. The Menuki on both swords are Shakudo and gold depicting Samurai weapons (i.e. sword, bow and arrow). Both Tsukas on the Daisho are wrapped with blue silk. The Sami ray skin is of the higher-quality type. Habakis on both blades are Shakudo with clouds and two gold cranes on each side. The Wakizashi has a signed Kozuka blade. The Kozuka handle also depicts mounted Samurai at the river in Shakudo and gold and is also signed. Both Sayas are of the ribbed-type construction. Three quarters of the Saya at the mouth are colored with a copper/gold lacquer. The rest of the Saya is ribbed with black lacquer and applications of Japanese arrowheads. Both Sayas are unfortunately split in some areas and are missing the Kojiri. Both Sayas are fitted with a black lacquer Kurikata.

These swords were forged by the 5th generation which would put it in the Shinto period 1751, or the 6th generation which would be Shinshinto 1781. They are well worth restoration and would be a handsome and important signed Daisho. 4-51046 PQ1 (5,000-10,000)

RARE COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY RIMFIRE REVOLVER. Cal. 22. SN 135481. Extremely rare single action. Only 107 revolvers were ever built in 22 caliber. Ninety of those were built on recycled 44 rim fire frames with the remaining 17 built as original 22 revolvers. This is one of those 17. It has a 7-1/2” bbl, blue & case colored with replacement 1-pc ivory grips. The bbl has 1-line block letter address with a hyphen at the back end and none at the front. It has 2-line patent markings with rampant Colt in a circle. The left side of the bbl is marked “22 R.F.” The periods in the bbl address and caliber marking are square. The cylinder has a beveled front edge and square back edge with a small “G” proof on the backside. The bottom of the bbl, at the frame is marked “22M”. The left side of the grips has four large silver stars and an early style spread winged American eagle with gold shield on its breast. The bbl has a slight, normal, rounded crown with the end through the frame square with a slight chamfered forcing cone. The hammer is a typical rim fire hammer with the firing pin approximately 3/32” wide secured with two pins. Accompanied by a Colt factory letter identifying this revolver as having been shipped to J.C. Rodger, address unavailable on Nov. 15, 1893. CONDITION: Extremely fine as restored. Retaining virtually all of its fine finish, blue and case colors. There are a couple of scratches on the bbl near the cylinder pin, otherwise it is near perfect. Case colors are dark & brilliant and appear nearly authentic, under a coating of shellac. Grips were apparently made for another revolver, as they are a poor fit. Mechanics are fine.

RARE MARTIALLY MARKED EARLY SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER. Cal. 45 Colt. SN 16293. Very rare Samuel B. Lewis inspected cavalry Colt. Bbl has been slightly reduced to 7-5/16” and the original front sight modified. It has 1-pc walnut grips and is nickel-plated. Bbl has the slanted 1-line address with daggers at each end. There are small “L” proofs on the various parts, and has its original bull’s eye ejector rod head. One of the great rarities in martial single action is a Lewis sub-inspected revolver. He apparently only inspected about 360 pieces in his short tenure. It is reported that as of May 1997 there were only 18 other recorded Lewis inspected single actions known. In a conversation with John Kopec he reported that serial numbers 16291, 16294 and 16295 were all reported as nickeled revolvers. He stated that these were reclaimed militia revolvers that were nickeled and resold when they were in like-new condition. An unproven speculation is that most, if not all, of the Lewis inspected revolvers were issued to the Iowa Militia. Our revolver was discovered in South Dakota where the consignor currently lives. CONDITION: Nickel plated, as noted. All markings appear to be authentic and sharp with all numbers matching including the bbl & cylinder. Grips have a number penciled in the channel, but it is illegible. Bbl apparently was damaged around the muzzle and reduced accordingly. Overall, our revolver retains about 60% strong bright nickel with spots of heavy pitting near the muzzle and on the left side of the bbl and on the sight. Cylinder has nickel in the flutes with the balance gray metal color with light pitting. Grips are very worn and dinged and appear to have been scraped and are missing chips at the toes. Mechanics are crisp, strong bright bore and a few spots of light pitting. Chambers are lightly pitted. 4-51521 JR728 (7,500-12,500)

*EXTREMELY RARE SMITH & WESSON MODEL 1917 DA REVOLVER. Cal. 45ACP mag. SN 75263. Very unusual 1917 with standard 5-1/2” bbl, blue finish, smooth walnut grips and a Lanyard loop in the butt. It has standard markings on the bbl, frame, and butt with the unusual addition of a McGivern bead Partridge front sight and standard, pre-war, Smith & Wesson adjustable rear sight which is numbered to this revolver on the underneath side. The grips are stamped on the inside with a large “US” and the left side of the grip frame, under the grips, has the factory refinish mark of a stamped diamond. Accompanied by a Smith & Wesson letter dated Dec 11, 1998 over the signature of Roy Jinks identifying this revolver as having been shipped July 5, 1918 to the US Government Springfield Armory as a standard revolver. It further states that this revolver was returned to Smith & Wesson somewhere in the mid 1920’s at which time the factory installed the adjustable rear sight and a target front sight. The frame and bbl were milled to accommodate these sights, after which it was refinished and new smooth stocks were installed and stamped “US”. Mr. Jinks states, at that time, that this conversion is exceptionally rare and to that date he had only ever seen 3 such conversions during the 40 years he had been researching Smith & Wesson revolvers. Page 217 of the book “SMITH & WESSON 1857-1945 REVISED EDITION” by Jinks & Neal refers to this model and states “It is reported that a few of this model were fitted with target sights for the US Army”. CONDITION: Very fine. Retains 92-94% bright factory finish with light muzzle and edge wear, a moderate cylinder line with light handling and use marks. Grips are crisp.

LARGE LOT OF HISTORICAL WYOMING COWBOY & LAW ENFORCEMENT ITEMS THAT BELONGED TO HAPPY JACK ALLEN. This lot consists of an engraved single action army Colt, Allen’s original Casper, WY made belt & holster rig, an original pair of Schnitger silver decorated spurs, three of Allen’s police badges, two peace officer association meeting ribbons, Allen’s early Lower’s Patent handcuffs and Allen’s Clabrough & Bros. dbl barrel hammer shotgun.

All of these items were the property of and used by Robert John “Happy Jack” Allen. Mr. Allen was born in 1876 in Brooklyn, NY, orphaned in 1880, lived with his grandparents until their death in 1890. At the age of 14, in 1890, he arrived in Cheyenne, WY and took a job at the Arbuckle Ranch on Pole Creek, outside of Cheyenne. In 1892 he was hired by U.S. Senator J.M. Carey’s CY Cattle Ranch outside of Casper. This was the ranch used as a staging area when the cattlemen of the area employed about 40 hired guns to drive out the outlaws and rustlers, which is now known as the Johnson County War. In 1897 Allen and his fellow CY cowboys raided the famous “Hole in the Wall” to retrieve stolen cattle and had a shootout with the gang residing there, killing one and wounding and capturing another. Also in 1897 Allen was a bronc rider in the very first Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. In 1898 Allen enlisted in Torrey’s Rough Riders and became a Sargent in Troop K. They were eventually drafted into the regular Army and became the 2nd U.S. Volunteer Cavalry and rode with Theodore Roosevelt up San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War. After the War, Allen returned to the CY Ranch where he remained for another 1-1/2 years. In 1903 he was hired as a deputy sheriff of Natrona County, WY.

Accompanying this lot is Allen’s original Deputy Sheriff’s badge. In 1905 Allen was persuaded to join Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show as a member of the Congress of Rough Riders and toured Europe with the show for two years. When he returned to the U.S. he moved to Coatesville, PA and became a detective for the Coatesville Police Dept. and Chief of Police for the Worth Steel Corp. where he served until 1917, when he re-entered the Army and served in the Intelligence Corps. In 1921 he returned to Wyoming and was appointed a State Agent of Law Enforcement. In 1923 he was appointed Deputy U.S. Marshall for Wyoming and in 1929 was appointed as Commissioner of Law Enforcement for the State of Wyoming (Today’s Chief of State Police). Accompanying this lot is Allen’s original Commissioner of Law Enforcement badge. In 1932, he was appointed U.S. Marshall for Wyoming by President Herbert Hoover. Also accompanying this lot is Allen’s original appointment certificate. In 1934 he was elected Sheriff of Natrona County, WY. Accompanying this lot is Allen’s sheriff’s badge with number “1”. Allen was re-elected Sheriff several times and died in 1942 in Casper, WY. Also accompanying this lot are two Wyoming Peace Officer’s Association Meeting pins from 1941 and 1942. Also accompanies is a rare and original pair of Schnitger silver decorated spurs, custom made for Allen. Each spur has a 2-1/4” 32-point round rowel with 8 holes. Each spur has nicely carved 2-pc leather straps. Each spur has full silver overlay on the left side with two large domed buttons. The silver plate has light engraving and the buttons were also engraved in star pattern but are now worn smooth. Both sides of the shank and chap guard along with the rowel pin button are inlaid with decorated silver. The inside of the bow shank & chap guard are identically inlaid with silver without the large buttons. The strap buttons are covered with silver, engraved with a large “A”. Additionally is a rare pair of “Lower” marked iron handcuffs with their original key.

An important part of this collection is a single action Colt revolver, 4-3/4” bbl, caliber 45, serial number 92242. It has about 60% coverage, fine New York style foliate & floral arabesque pattern engraving with punch dot background. It has 2-pc pearl grips with a very deep carved steer head on the right grip. Accompanying the Colt is a factory letter identifying this revolver as having been shipped May 9, 1883 in a shipment of 10 such revolvers to Hartley & Graham, NY, NY. The letter indicates that the finish was “soft”. This indicates that it was not factory finished but was shipped for engraving & finishing outside the factory. This engraving has all the earmarks of Nimschke or his shop. Also accompanying the Colt is a letter dated 23 April 1998 from Jack Allen, the grandson of Happy Jack Allen, who states that in approximately 1903 his grandfather acquired this revolver and that it was his personal sidearm throughout his law enforcement career and remained in his possession until his death in 1942 when it was passed on down the family. Also included is a well-made and decorated period belt & holster set. The holster is a 2-loop style with tooled edges and a home buck-stitched open edge. The center of the top is stamped “OSCAR HIESTAND / MAKER / CASPER, WYO.” The belt is a folded soft leather money belt with nicely press-decorated edges with 41 cartridge loops. And lastly is Allen’s J.P. Clabrough & Bros. damascus bbl hammer shotgun. It is a side lever model with the bbls cut to 20”. It has had heavy use with severe damage to the forearm & wrist with clever old repairs using copper plates & strips. Additionally accompanying are two large framed photos of performers in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. One photo dated 1905 with a plaque stating “Budapest, Hungary 1905 / Happy Jack Allen Fourth from Right”. The other shows a large group of mounted cowboys & cowgirls in a semi-circle and is dated “1906”.

CONDITION: Three badges are all fine with the Commissioner of Law Enforcement badge showing light wear with some brass showing through the nickel, the other two are fine. Spurs and straps are very worn but sound and intact. Handcuffs are a smooth gray patina with some light surface spotting. Holster is very dry & fragile with a break near the top loop. Belt is also dry with the loops having been re-laced with rawhide and the billets moved as the owner expanded. Shotgun is very worn with breaks in the forearm & wrist and a small splice in the wrist with copper plate repairs. Mechanics are fine with pitted shiny bores. Colt retains most of a fine restored finish with some scattered light pitting. Exceptional grips have two or three small hairlines and a tiny chip at the heel and receiver on the left side but are brilliant with lots of fire and color, a truly exceptional pair of grips. Mechanics need attention as it will not hold on any of the hammer notches. Strong bright bore with fine pitting. Photographs are hand colored and in fine condition. 4-51586 JR1018 (27,500-37,500)

WATERCOLOR OF SIOUX INDIAN BY GUSTAVE GARRETT (1882-1951). This portrait watercolor of a Sioux Indian depicts a brave with fur cap and three eagle feathers. The brave dressed in a blue shirt with a red bandanna. Titled in the upper left “Sioux Tribe” and then signed in the lower right “G. Garrett” with a circle beneath it and a dot and dated 1903. According to documentation accompanying the watercolor, this was the only student of noted Western artist, Henry Francois Farny. An old newspaper clipping from the Cincinnati Times/Star dated May 16, 1956 depicts a Mrs. Kaiser holding a watercolor of an Indian chief from a Sioux tribe captioned “. . . Painted by the well known Indian painter, Gustave H. Garrett, a pupil of Farny . . .”. The attached paperwork includes the image of Garret together with some information about him. The documentation indicates that Garrett and Farny went to South Dakota in the early 1900’s, and spent a few years there studying painting and sketching Indians, later returning to Cincinnati. Indeed this specific image appears to be of an Indian brave that Farny also painted. His depiction, however, significantly differently, appears to be quite certainly the same Indian. This is framed in a large antique gesso gold frame. SIZE: 9-1/2” high x 7-1/2” wide, size of image only. CONDITION: Watercolor appears to be in fine condition. 4-51353 (6,000-8,000)

INDIAN USED WINCHESTER MODEL 1866 LEVER ACTION CARBINE. Cal 44RF Henry. SN 124375. Accordding to “Firearms in the Custere Battle” by Parsons and Dumont, this # was supposedly turned in by Sitting Bull. This standard carbine has had the bbl reduced to 18-1/2”, has integral front band/sight and a forearm band. The last four digits of the serial number are stamped in the top tang channel of the stock and inside the toe of the buttplate. The right side of the forearm and both sides of the buttplate have rows of iron tacks. There are seven 5/16” tacks on the forearm and fifteen 1/4” tacks at the buttplate. There is evidence that there may have been four more tacks on the left side of the butt that are now missing. One of the tacks was driven into the trap recess and appears to have a round shank. It has uncheckered wood with straight stock and brass carbine buttplate with trap. It is accompanied by True West Magazine of June 1964, which on page 51 states that the famous Sioux medicine man, Sitting Bull, had surrendered serial number 124375, to Major Brotherton at Fort Buford, July 19, 1881 and that it was currently in the Major Brotherton collection at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC? That gun, in fact, carries serial number 124335. Included is a copy of Firearms in the Custer Battle by Parsons & DuMont wherein it is stated that when Sitting Bull with 187 other Indians surrendered July 21, 1881 at Fort Buford in the Dakota territory, their guns and horses were confiscated by Major Brotherton. “One of the pieces, a tack-studded Winchester carbine Model 1866, serial 124375, which left the factory in 1875, is believed to have been turned in by Sitting Bull himself”. CONDITION: About good. Iron retains a mottled silver brown patina. Bbl lettering is clear and the receiver shows substantial wear with minor nicks and
