RR Auction Abner Doubleday Signed Carte-de-visite Photo

08 Aug

Rare original 2.25 x 4 carte-de-visite photo of Doubleday in uniform by C. D. Fredericks & Co. of New York, signed below the image in black ink, “A. Doubleday, Major General.” In fine condition, with Doubleday’s rank just a shade lighter than signature and a couple light surface marks to background. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from James Spence. Doubleday was promoted to major general in March 1863, and in July led his cavalry corps at Gettysburg, where, though outnumbered, they inflicted massive casualties against ten Confederate brigades. An incredibly rare offering, just the second signed image of Doubleday we have offered in over 30 years. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
