This is a Buffalo Bill item that would have appeal for collectors of both western and Buffalo Bill meomorabelia. It is a tintype circa 1890’s (the Buffalo Bill shows started in 1883). It depicts two young men, dressed in their finest clothes, sitting in a horse drawn buggy perceptually on their way to a Buffalo Bill Wild West Show. There is a poster on the wall of the barn (very rare and I have never seen on a tintype).
The close up image says:

“Buffalo Bill
Wild West
Lewiston
Saturday
June
1st
Excursion
Rates
Rough Riders”

Tintype measures 3 1/2″ x 2 3/8″. It is in very good original condition; some pitting and scratching to the surface.

Included is a beautiful 11″ x 14″ sepia tone photograph that I had made from the tintype (see image). Professionally framed in attractive solid walnut.

Note: Slight glare in image is a reflection.
