    1886 N167 Old Judge Type 2 Buffalo Bill Cody SGC 30 Good 2 - Their Only Graded Example! "Buffalo Bill" Cody was one of the most respected of all the civilian scouts and guides for the U.S. Army. Gen. Eugene Carr, wrote of Cody that "his eyes were better than a good field glass," his marksmanship was exceptional, and he was always seemed in the right place at the right time. From 1868 through 1876 Buffalo Bill fought in nineteen documented battles and skirmishes, more than all but a handful of soldiers. He was awarded the Medal of Honor 1872, his commanding officer paid him homage by suggesting he need say no more than, "Mr. Cody acted in his usual manner." Buffalo Bill went on to fame and fortune, first on the stage and then with the first and greatest Wild West show from 1883 to 1913. By the end of the 19th century he was one of the most famous Americans in the world. Offered is a very rare N167 Old Judge of the great American, graded SGC 30 Good 2, it is the only example graded by SGC to date, PSA has graded just one. Heritage sold that card in May, 2013. A close review shows very light creases and what looks like a partially erased "V" on the elegant horizontal ad reverse. A great card to own as few can claim top own one.
