This example was personally issued by Herbert Wells Fay, from the original negative, his label on the verso with his copyright. The example in the National Archives is also from the Fay collection.

The albumen is in excellent condition, the front mount has some wear at the bottom, and on the verso are some old imprints from a news agency - reseller. The piece is ca. 1870's.
