    Description

    Joshua Chamberlain: A Rare Signed Brady Carte de Visite of the Hero of Little Round Top This is a very scarce item; the CDV alone would fetch thousands as the pose is one that is rarely found, and Chamberlain's signature is particularly desirable on a photo.

    He won the Congressional Medal of Honor for his Gettysburg role, and was elevated to the rank of brigadier general by Grant for his gallantry before the Battle of Petersburg. Chamberlain went on to become one of Maine's leading citizens, serving as governor (1867-1871) and as president of Bowdoin College (1871-1883).

    The present example is in near fine condition with great contrast. A light crease traverses the lower left corner of the albumen and Brady mount; but boasts a clean, bold signature below his portrait, and Brady's stamp on the verso. An old ink stamp on the reverse identifies that the CDV came from the "Collection of Chas. B. Hall". Minor soiling and two light old tape discoloration on reverse (no surface material missing). The corners are gently rounded, but the item presents very nicely. Size: 2.375" x 4".

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
