Vint Civil War Cdv Photo Medical Officer W/ Sword & Kepi Amesbury Mass For Sale

Vint Civil War Cdv Photo Medical Officer W/ Sword & Kepi Amesbury Mass

Today I will be listing some nice vintage ephemera, photos,and books.I buy at local sales and estate sales here in rural NH all week and list most everything I find on . All items guaranteed to be vintage and original, no reproductions. Check my other sales for more fun old stuff.

THIS ITEM: This is a vintage CDV photo (explained below) of a Civil War soldier. I have been told by a collector that the unususl sword and the MS on his hat indicate that he was a medical officer. He said that this type of sword was worn only by a paymaster or a doctor. The soldier is unidentified. The CDV is marked on the reverse "Clarkson, Photographer, Amesbury, Mass." This is a nice, clear image. I don't know which regiment he was with, but if you were to research a doctor from Amesbury, Mass, you may be able to identify him. Guaranteed to be a vintage Civil War image, not a reprint.

The carte de visite (abbreviated to CDV) was a type of small photograph which was patented in Paris, France in 1854 which was a thin paper photograph mounted on a thicker paper card. Each photograph was the size of a visiting card, and such photograph cards became enormously popular and were traded among friends and visitors. The immense popularity of these card photographs led to the publication and collection of photographs of prominent persons. "Cardomania" spread throughout Europe and then quickly to America. Albums for the collection and display of cards became a common fixture in Victorian parlors. By the early 1870s, cartes de visite were supplanted by "cabinet cards," which were also usually albumen prints, but larger, mounted on cardboard backs measuring 110 mm (4.5 in) by 170 mm (6.5 in). Cabinet cards remained popular into the early 20th century, when Kodak introduced the Brownie camera and home snapshot photography became a mass phenomenon.

CONDITION: Excellent, minmal wear on mount, image fine. Very clean. See my scans.

US BUYERS: Priority Mail shipped in a cardboard box with tracking - $5.00. Email with questions BEFORE offerding.

If I'm not confident that an expensive item will be delivered safely, I WILL NOT SEND IT.
