Stunning signed, full-length portrait of Apache warrior Geronimo

Extremely rare and immensely desirable vintage glossy 3.75 x 5.25 full-length photo of the legendary Apache warrior in Western wear, affixed to its original 6 x 8 mount, nicely signed on the mount in pencil, "Geronimo." In fine condition. Accompanied by a notarized letter of provenance from a previous owner, stating that it "came from the collection of my great uncle, Howard Stein. He was from Kansas City, Mo. and he collected historical memorabilia and autographs—with an emphasis on Western folks—Wild West. He collected for over 50 years and amassed a collection containing many prominent figures—which included—Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, Jesse James, Sitting Bull,—just to name a few." An absolutely marvelous signed portrait of Geronimo, which stands as one of the true rarities of the Old West.
