Chief Joseph Shirt Brings Lots of Bucks
RENO, Nev. (AP) — A war shirt worn by Chief Joseph of the Nez Pierce tribe has sold for $877,500 at auction in Nevada. Chief Joseph wore the shirt in 1877 in the earliest known photo of him, and again while posing for a portrait by Cyrenius Hall in 1878. The painting was used on a U.S. postage stamp and now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution. Mike Overby, an organizer of the annual Coeur d'Alene Art Auction, says the shirt that sold Saturday is considered to be one of the most important Native American artifacts to ever come to auction.
