National Newark & Essex Banking Co. check, 6.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Oakley, "Annie Oakley Butler," payable to Third Savings & Loan Co. for $50, March 11, 1926. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the superb signature graded "MINT 9." In fine condition. After winning a shooting contest against traveling marksman and future husband Frank Butler, the five-foot-tall, 15-year-old Oakley quickly earned a reputation as one of the finest and fastest triggers in the Midwest. She eventually set out with Butler on a national tour with Buffalo Bill's Wild West, earning more than any other performer with the exception of the show's eponymously named star. A superb autograph from the famed female sharpshooter.
