Item 153 - Annie Oakley Catalog 565 (Sep 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $4,972.50 (includes buyer's premium)


National Newark & Essex Banking Co. check, 6.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Oakley, "Annie Oakley Butler," payable to her husband Frank E. Butler for $8, June 12, 1926. The reverse is endorsed in pencil by Frank Butler, and bears a note in Oakley's hand which reads, "For hunting trunk I bought from Mr. Butler." In fine condition, with two light vertical folds. 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.
