Lot 261: New Mexico lawman (1850-1908) who killed his former gambling partner, the fabled outlaw Billy the Kid, in 1881. Partly-printed DS, signed twice "P. F. Garrett" and once "P. F. G.," one page both sides, 10 x 8, December 12, 1899. Certificate for two hundred shares of capital stock in the Alabama Gold and Copper Mining Company, issued to Pat Garrett himself, signed at the conclusion by Garrett as secretary and countersigned by J. M. Llewellyn as the company's president. The one-dollar revenue stamp affixed to the upper right is initialed in Garrett's hand, "P. F. G, Dec. 12/99." Signed once more on the reverse by Garrett upon transfer of the stock to H. D. Bowman. The gold seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact. Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 16.5 x 14.5, with a window in the backing for viewing the reverse. In fine condition, with expected document wear. Garrett's signature is one of the most coveted of all Old West figures, and a document such as this-in fantastic condition and with three signatures-is of the utmost desirability.
