    Circa 1890s S. Harris Buffalo Bill Cody Pin With Ribbon. Offered is a beautiful circa 1890's pin featuring Buffalo Bill Cody. "Buffalo Bill" Cody was one of the biggest celebrities of his era. Cody was a decorated scout for the US Army who went on to fame and fortune, first on the stage and then the "First and Greatest Wild West Show" from 1883 to 1913, even appearing with Sitting Bull. By the end of the 19th century he was one of the most famous Americans in the world. Naturally he would be the subject of tobacco collectibles craze of the late-19th Century. This 1-1/4" diameter pin features a noted portrait created and used by Stacy Studios cabinet card dating to the 1890's. It is certainly possible this was a souvenir sold at Cody's "First and Greatest Wild West Show." The pin comes with a 6" red ribbon that may or may not be original but compliments the pin very nicely. The pin is in fantastic condition with barely any signs of wear and fresh gloss. The metal backing does show some surface oxidation. Inscribed on the rim of the pin is patent applied for information for a "S. Harris." The photo quality is exceptional offering a full range of values and sharp details.
