Reverse inscribed "The Hero of Desperados". He is seated holding a Winchester lever action rifle, with a revolver in his belt. (Dimensions: 2.5 by 4 1/3".)

Our thanks to Ryan Hardesty for the excellent clarification on Devil Anse's clothing.

Following is a link to a newspaper story from 1911 that makes reference to those clothes. According to the story, which seems to be true, Devil Anse's son Johnse brought the cowboy suit home from a trip to Colorado in 1885 and he and Devil Anse and brother Cap took turns getting their photos made in it.
