Most of these I'll identify later, but here is a set of Buffalo Bill gloves and Sheriff gloves. The book? It is a trick book. Open it and it has a hammer that strikes a plate. Put a cap on the plate and very carefully close the book. Hand it to a friend (or enemy) and when they open the book… BANG! Imagine using something like that today?

Here's a set of Kilgore Pal Cap Guns with the authority of a badge behind them.

These are Hubley Tex guns. He made this display like the above, bought guns, holsters and badge and combined them.

Hubley Colt 45, mint Keystone cuffs, two sets bullets—all purchased separatly. Notice the Hopalong Cassidy badge?
