Carte di Visite of an Indian Wars Army staff officer; a super image!
If you collect headgear, and the period images that show them being worn, this is one of the best examples you could ever hope to obtain. Published in John Langellier’s “Hat Off” and Ex-Mike McAfee collection, this fantastic high quality image is as sharp to be able to appreciate the integrate detail of the cap insignia.
From a photographic standpoint as well and it’s military significance, there is only one flaw; He isn’t identified. Taken by Broadbent and Phillips. Philadelphia.
Best of the best.
