Published in Wilson & Martin's Buffalo Bill's Wild West: An American Legend (p. 9), where it is described as believed to have been taken at Fort McPherson, Nebraska, ca 1871, and illustrates Cody's flair for showmanship even before he became a performer.

Accompanied by a copy of a letter from noted collector Herb Peck, a long time owner of the image, with response by Norm Flayderman, regarding ownership of a revolver seen in the photograph.  


Very good condition.
