1863 Cdv Photograph Of Young Boy In Civil War Zouave-type Uniform W/ Rifle For SaleFantastic and original, 1863, CDV Photograph of a young boy wearing a pseudo-Civil War Zouave Uniform and holding his rifle.
This wonderful CDV Photo measures approx. 2 1/8" by 3 1/2" and is mounted in its original, square corner photographer's card mount (overall size of card mount is 2 3/8" by 4") The Photograph depicts the Boy seated in a photographer's studio on a draped chair. He wears a light colored shell jacket and matching light colored pants that appear to be similar to those worn by Zouave Civil War soldiers. With his left hand he holds the base of the barrel of a rather substantial rifle which appears to be an exceptionally realistic toy. Although neither the Boy nor the photographer is identified in any way, the image carries a hand ink stamped cancellation (similar to a postmark) marked "Proof" and dated July 23, 1863.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
