THE ORIGINAL PERSONAL GUIDON OF GENERALISSIMO FRANCISO FRANCO OF SPAIN. This is the actual guidon used by Franco during the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s.. Upon his death in 1975 it was given to General Antonio Aleman of the Spanish Army, a close friend and military colleague. Upon General Aleman’s death the guidon passed to his daughter, Ms. Mari Carmen Aleman. In 1997 Ms. Aleman gave the guidon to Cpt. Roniel Aledo who has maintained it in his possession since then. This little guidon appears to be made of silk, is dbl sided, 5-3/4″ long by about 5″ wide with bordering gold thread fringe. It is imprinted with what the Spanish referred to as “dragantes lobos” (dragon wolves) appearing from the top and bottom corners with crowned columns (the pillars of Hercules) in the opposite corners, one of which is wrapped with a ribbon inscribed “Plus” and the other inscribed “Vltra”. The term “guidon”, in this instance, is not a reference to a cavalry flag but derives from the Spanish “Guion” which indicates a personal flag of a Chief-of-State. Framed in an inexpensive gold colored frame with black backing. CONDITION: Fine. Lightly soiled with some fraying around the back edges. Colors are bright and appears to be completely intact. 4-53187 JR931 (2,500-5,000)

AN ORIGINAL PEN AND INK CARTOON DRAWING OF UNCLE SAM BY EDNA VALENTINE MINOR. Inscribed in lower right to Mrs. W. Bob Holland. Probably dates to around the turn of the century. A Thomas Nast-type figure. Uncle Sam stands resolutely before a door with name tag “W. J. Gaynor”. Obviously, a political cartoon of the period. The reverse of this original pen and ink has another partially drawn image. SIZE: 12” wide x 17-3/4” high, not including frame. CONDITION: Some surface abrasion scattered over the door and beneath Uncle Sam’s hat. It appears that the abrasion existed at the time that the artist completed the cartoon for publication, as Uncle Sam’s hat is painted through at least one portion of the surface abrasion. Also, a small 1-1/2” tear in the upper left-hand corner. 3-30449 (300-500)

The bottom of the butt is inscribed “R.J.B. to Tom / 12-25-25”. Accompanied by a Colt factory letter identifying this revolver and indicating shipment to R.J. Brady, address unavailable, on December 7, 1925. This leads one to speculate that it was a Christmas present. This single action appears to have turned up in Florida and was obtained by the well known single action dealer, the late Ron Ogan, of Palm Beach. Mr. Ogan states in his list #17, item #1, that he purchased this revolver along with several other pieces at a local gun show and subsequently learned that it had Texas Ranger association. He states that on page 69 of The Texas Ranger Book, by Charles Schreiner III, is a picture of Tom Brady on horseback in 1924. At that time Tom Brady was a member of Capt. W.L. Wright’s Company D. He also states that he subsequently acquired the enlistment papers and oath of office for Brady. In another letter from Ogan, dated January 23, 1986, he reiterates the above information. Accompanied by the Colt Factory letter, as previously mentioned, a copy of Ogan’s list #17, Ogan’s 1986 letter, a copy of page 99 of an unknown book, chapter 18 titled “The Brady Brothers”. It pictures Sheriff Tom G. Brady and indicates he was born in the Fairview community, Wilson County, TX in 1901, joined the Texas Rangers in 1923 and served under Capt. W.L. Wright in Company D. It further states that in 1925 he entered the U.S. Mounted Customs Service and worked the Mexican Border in the South Texas brush country where he had many fights and battles. He was elected sheriff of Dimmit County at Carrizo Springs, TX. It states that he has arrested and jailed many desperate characters including the notorious Spence Edwards. Also included is a copy of pages from the book HORSEBACKERS OF THE BRUSH COUNTRY which on page 69 has a picture of Capt. Wright and six of his rangers including Tom Brady. Also included is a copy of Tom Brady’s Ranger Oath of Office and enlistment forms. CONDITION: Very fine plus, the bbl retains about 95% strong bright original blue. The ejector rod housing retains about 90% original blue, thin on the outside edge. The frame retains most of its case hardened finish with bright colors in the sheltered areas thinning and turning silver elsewhere. The hammer retains about 80% bright case colors.

The cylinder retains about 90% original blue with a couple of thin spots and a light cylinder line. The grips are fine, showing light wear.

MARTIALLY MARKED “BUY-BACK” COLT SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER. Cal. 45 Colt. SN 111890. Blue & case colored original finish, this revolver has a 4-13/16″ bbl, repositioned front sight, bull’s eye ejector rod head, “US” on the left side of the frame and “45 Cal.” on the left front web of the trigger bow. It has original 1-piece walnut grips with a fine Frank Heath cartouche and the date “1884” on the left side with a “DFC” cartouche in a rectangle on the right side. The frame above the serial number, bbl and cylinder have “DFC” sub-inspector marks. There is also a small “G” below the serial number on the trigger guard and again on the back strap. This revolver, while not specifically identified by serial number in Cavalry & Artillery Revolvers”, Kopec & Fenn, it is in the range of many that were identified as “Buy-Back” revolvers. Kopec speculates that these revolvers were issued to various militia units who later sold them to a major gun dealer who, in turn, resold them to Colt at a cheaper price than they could be manufactured. Colt altered them by shortening the bbls to an odd length and stamping the caliber on the web of the trigger guard, thus identifying them as civilian revolvers that have passed stringent military inspection. This, ostensibly made them more saleable to the public. Accompanied by a Colt factory letter identifying this revolver as having been shipped to the U.S. Government at the Colt plant in a shipment of 150 like items on October 30, 1884. Also accompanied by a Kopec letter discussing the information as related above and authenticating this revolver as a “Buy-Back”. CONDITION: Fine, the bbl retains about 60% original blue with scattered spots of light pitting. The ejector rod housing retains 40-50% original blue with a few spots of heavy pitting. The frame retains about 30-40% dark case colors with a file mark on the right side below the hammer screw. The hammer screw and one small frame screw are replacements. The cylinder retains traces of original blue in the flutes with scattered light surface pitting and one area of heavier pitting that corresponds to a spot on the loading gate. The grips are fine with both cartouches and the date sharp and legible. The right side has a rough area that appears to be rodent gnawing. The back strap has an area of moderate pitting. Mechanics are crisp with what may be a replacement hammer spring as it is very stiff. The cylinder pin screw is missing, strong bright bore with scattered light to moderate pitting. A scarce and desirable martial single action. 4-53190 JR806 (6,000-10,000)

The bbl root where it meets the frame has been staked in an apparent attempt to make the bbl line up properly. Also accompanied by an undated, hand written letter stating that this revolver was used by Gene Barry in the TV series “Bat Masterson”. The holster is also reported as the original holster for this revolver and also used in the TV series. The letter is signed “Johnny Thunder / Hollywood Gun Coach”.

ALTERED CUSTER RANGE COLT SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER. Cal. 45 Colt. SN 4563. Early Aimsworth inspected single action with 5-1/2″ bbl and repositioned front sight that has been soldered 3/4″ from the muzzle. The frame has the “U.S.” acceptance stamp and 2-line patent markings. The serial numbers are mixed with the bbl having number “1123”, the cylinder “4609” and the trigger guard “31838”. The back strap number has been obliterated from file marks. The frame serial number falls between two cavalry revolvers that are known, #4557 and #4564 which were all part of Lot 5 Government Contract from which the 7th Cavalry received their initial issue on July 2, 1874. John Kopec, noted author and historian in the matter of martially marked single action Colts, states in a letter dated December 9, 2002, that it is a good possibility that this revolver was one which was issued to Custer’s 7th Cavalry regiment. He further notes that three revolvers from the 4500 serial number range have Custer Battlefield documentation. #4507 was listed as Gen. Terry’s personal revolver, #4553 was a back strap located near the Indian village fight and #4597 belonged to Lt. Luther Hare of the 7th Cavalry ca. 1874. This revolver likely remained in service until the recall of 1893 when it was probably altered to artillery configuration. The bbl currently on this revolver was not altered at that time as the sight is completely wrong and brazed in place and the bbl root has been peened to make it fit more snug. The grips appear to be original old grips, but do not fit very well as there are paper shims in the frame. One frame screw has been changed or possibly only dressed down. Accompanied by the previously mentioned Kopec letter. CONDITION: Good, as previously noted, no original finish remains with the bbl and grip frame being a light gray patina and the frame a dark patina. The grips show much wear with some battering on the bottom. The cylinder also shows much wear with traces of blue in the flutes. The ejector rod head is the later crescent shaped type. The hammer will not hold on safety or half cock, otherwise mechanics are okay. Strong bright bore with scattered light pitting. Additional research may eventually disclose a better connection to the 7th Cavalry. 4-53191 JR808 (4,500-7,500)

*VERY RARE ENGRAVED 1ST YEAR PRODUCTION WINCHESTER MODEL 1905 SEMI-AUTO RIFLE. Cal. 35 SL. SN 285. Fantastic Stokes engraved rifle with eight game scene vignettes on the receiver. The left side has a large central vignette of a standing, face on, bull elk. It has a crouching bobcat with dead rabbit to the left and a fox to the right. The right side has a large central vignette of a side view of a standing bull elk with a black bear to the left side and a grizzly bear to the right. The top of the receiver has a large vignette of a side view of a standing bull moose and the rear edge of the receiver has the relief engraved silhouette of a standing fox or coyote. Each of these vignettes has distinctive and unique background and foreground engraved patterns. The attention to detail is obviously the work of a master engraver such as Stokes. These vignettes are all surrounded by very tight, well executed foliate arabesque patterns with the sides having “X” and blanks borders and the top edges a chain border. The front edges of the receiver have an altogether a different style of border, obviously intended to exhibit the engraver’s talent. The engraving extends down the top tang and around the rear edge of the receiver with the bottom of the trigger bow engraved to match. The proof mark on top of the receiver is surrounded by an engraved flower. This rifle was surely intended for, and probably used as a factory exhibit piece at a World’s Fair, trade show or other widely viewed exhibition to draw attention.

It has a 22″ tapered rnd bbl with pedestal front sight and rounded semi-cloverleaf rear sight. The wood is straight grain American walnut, uncheckered with straight grip and Winchester embossed hard rubber buttplate. Accompanied by an undated 7-page George Madis letter fully describing this rifle. He states that Stokes was a Winchester engraver from about 1887 to about 1920. He also states that this rifle was shipped on Sept. 7, 1905 and returned Apr. 7, 1906, reason not indicated. He states it is his opinion that when the rifle was returned in 1906 it was to change the wood from fancy stock & forearm to its current straight grain wood. He offers no other explanation. Mr. Madis also states that in his vast experience and all of the multitudes of Winchester firearms he has examined, he had never before observed one with eight vignettes. Neither has this cataloguer ever observed engraving so lavishly applied to a modern Winchester rifle. CONDITION: Fine to very fine, the bbl retains 97-98% original factory blue with some light surface etching toward the muzzle end on the top. The receiver retains about 90% original blue with light wear and thinning on the top rear. The sides of the receiver have numerous tiny pinpoints of fine surface rust. The trigger bow outer edge is a dark patina. The wood is sound with the forearm a dark cleaned oil stained patina showing moderate wear, especially around the rear sight area. The butt stock has numerous small nicks, scratches & dings with a tiny chip at the toe and a scratch on the bottom and retains about 90% original finish. Mechanics are fine, bright shiny bore. 4-53573 (15,000-18,000)

ANTIQUE TIN ADVERTISEMENT FOR PRINCE ALBERT TOBACCO. Depicting Chief Joseph. Chief Joseph of the Nez Perez was one of the more brilliant tacticians of all of the Indian leaders. In the late 19th century, this reasonably docile tribe of Indians in the Western part of the United States, after several encounters with encroaching White civilization elected to essentially pack up and leave the country and go to Canada. The U.S. Army pursued them relentlessly, and in encounter after encounter despite the fact that Joseph was encumbered with women, old folks, children, and only a small amount of braves managed to outmaneuver and outfight the might of the U.S. Cavalry. After an exhausting running battle for over a thousand miles, Joseph and his tribe exhausted, finally came to stop in an area that they thought was Canada, only to learn later that they were still in the United States and subsequently captured and sent on to a reservation. This tin sign depicts Joseph in full headdress. It was printed by the American Artworks, Coshocton, Ohio. During the late 19th and early 20th century Indians were exceedingly popular figures, and a few advertising companies capitalized on this using their images in promoting their products. SIZE: 19” x 25” image only; 22” x 28” including frame. CONDITION: Two nail holes together with various scratches and dings scattered over the surface of the tin. Lithography generally strong. 3-30447 (2,000-3,000)

It is accompanied by a copy of a Cody Firearms Museum letter and copy of the Winchester “Special Guns Final Inspection Report” fully identifying this shotgun as a tool and process try out sample/process verification sample, which is dated 10/19/76. The letter indicates that it was shipped January 10, 1977. The inspection report states, in addition to the above information, that the rib panel is to be without name and no stock gold oval name plate. It also states that it was to have 3″ chambers and a Winchester recoil pad with leather cover and a medium comb with a 2-1/2″ pitch, 14″ LOP, 2-3/8″ drop at the heel and 1-1/2″ drop at the comb. Weight is 7 lbs. 5.7 oz. Additional research disclosed that there were only five .410 model 21’s built between 1960 and 1982. Of these five, four were built as process verification samples, which were built for manufacturing tests and promotional tools by Winchester. There were two Grand Americans and two Pigeon Grades. One of the Grand Americans belonged to Olin Corp. and was loaned and later given yto the Cody Firearms Museum, where it is prominently displayed.

The Location of the Pigeon Grade is unknown. From a collector’s view, the Pigeon Grade is by far the most rare of the custom guns. Therefore, it could be argued that this lot is the most rare .410 model 21 of the five built between 1960 and 1982. See WINCHESTER’S FINEST THE MODEL 21 by Ned Schwing, pg 336 & 440.

CONDITION: Exceptionally fine, as new, appears to be unfired with only a few small scrapes on the standing breech. It retains virtually all of its bright original factory finish to both metal and wood. There is a small spot of pitting on the inside of the forend iron and another tiny spot on the right ejector hammer. There are one or two tiny nicks in the stock finish, otherwise it is near perfect. Mechanics are crisp. Brilliant shiny bores. 4-53200 JR911 (35,000-50,000)
