Among the most noted events in American Wild West history was the “OK Corral” shootout in Arizona, which resulted from a dispute between rogue cowboys and several law enforcement officers. After the shootout, Wyatt Earp borrowed a shotgun from Fred Dodge and used it to kill “Curly Bill” Brocius. The 10-gauge shotgun was used by Dodge throughout his 40-year career and was also registered to be used by U.S. Marshal Heck Thomas. Heritage Auctions will feature this J. Stevens & Co. double barrel percussion shotgun in the upcoming Americana & Political Signature Auction. The sale also offers the famous tomahawk of Chief Joseph Brant.
Another highlighted lot is an enamel on a copper miniature portrait of George Washington by William Birch. Birch was the first artist to introduce enamel portraits to the United States. Interested bidders can also explore American campaign flags, walking sticks, clothes, bronze sculptures, signed documents, and silverware.
