“TWO GUNS WHITE CALF” NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN PHOTO POSTCARD, AUTOGRAPHED IN INK. “No. 9524 --- Two Guns White Calf, Glacier National Park” is the caption on this real photograph postcard. It is signed (pictograph?) in black ink fountain pen with two guns and a calf. I have no way of knowing if it is authentic, but it looks good.

Also known as John Two Guns and John Whitecalf Two Guns, this Blackfoot chief (1872-1934) provided one of the most readily recognizable images of a Native American in the world after an impression of his portrait appeared on a common coin, the Indian head nickel. Two Guns White Calf was born near Fort Benton, Montana, son of White Calf, who was known as the last chief of the Pikuni Blackfeet. His visage was used with those of John Big Tree (Seneca) and Iron Tail (Sioux) in James Earl Fraser's composite design for the nickel. After the coin's release around the turn of the last century, Two Guns White Calf became a fixture at Glacier National Park, where he posed with tourists. He also acted as a publicity spokesman for the Northern Pacific Railroad, whose public relations staff came up with the name "Two Guns White Calf."

Note sticker on bottom right with #194 written on it and old tape on corner of reverse of card.
