Buffalo Bill and the Wincheste Rifle... William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody was quite the legend. He was a Medal of Honor recipient during the Civil War. He was a showman. He was recorded also as an amazing hunter and marksman. In a time where buffalo were a nuisance, he killed 4,282 buffalo in a span of 18 months. Winchester picked up his story and marketed it. Ironically, most of his career was accomplished with a Springfield Model 1866. (Wikipedia)
This highlighted piece is an original Winchester, metal over cardboard advertising sign. It highlights Buffalo Bill and several models of the Winchester rifle. If you are a collector and are interested in this piece, you can find it for auction on my Ebay store. The link is in my bio.
