    CONFEDERATE COLONEL JOHN SINGLETON MOSBY SIGNED CDV AND CUT SIGNATURE IN AN ATTRACTIVE FRAMED DISPLAY. The CDV is matted to a size of 2.5" x 3.75", and was produced by Vannerson of Richmond (imprint on verso). Col. Mosby, "The Grey Ghost of the Confederacy", strikes a serious pose in this war-date carte de visite, which he has signed "Jno S Mosby Colonel C.S.A". War-date Mosby signatures are rare, especially on CDVs signed as colonel, a promotion granted to the head of the Partisan Rangers in December 1864. Mosby disbanded his Rangers just one year later rather than surrender to the victorious Union forces. Below the great CDV is an additional treat, a Mosby cut signature reading "Jno Mosby", and measuring 2.75" x 1.25" inside the mat. The two signatures are framed with a black and white reproduction photo of Mosby in full dress uniform and a previous catalog description of the signed CDV. Framed to an overall size of 13.25" x 9.75", this outstanding Mosby presentation is a ready-to-hang display piece fit for any collection of Confederate signatures.
