Signed check from the man who is widely regarded as the man who killed General Custer at the Battle of Little Bighorn (figuratively). This is a phenomenal piece of Americana, endorsed by Sitting Bull and his adopted son, “One Bull,” who did take part in the Battle of Little Big Horn, during which Custer and 200 of his men were killed. This is the black fountain pen signature of the first principal chief of the Sioux Indians and spiritual / political leader of the Lakota as it looked decades following his days as a fierce warrior. These are also likely the finest known signatures of these two icons. Each is clearly and darkly inked with virtually no fading or bleeding, grading “9” out of a possible 10. “St. Paul, Mch 19, 1884” written in lower left corner. Front of the check shows the partially printed First National Bank, LaFayette, Ind. with the rest of the check left blank, excepting the date, which shows Mar. 19, 1884. Check is lightly toned and creased once, o/w EX.
