    General Joseph K. F. Mansfield: Signature and Two Cartes de Visite (One Twice-Signed) from a Brady Negative. Three items, as follows: (1) A 3.25" x 1.5" sheet excised from a letter, signed "Your obt/ Jos K. F. Mansfield/ B. G. U.S.A." ; (2) A full-length pose standing portrait in uniform with epaulettes and holding a sword, with period ink ID beneath, an E. Anthony backmark, from a Brady negative; and (3) The same photo as above signed at lower margin "Jos K. F. Mansfield/ B. G. U.S.A." and on the verso "Jos K. F. Mansfield/ Brig Genl. U.S.A." He served both in the Mexican-American and Civil Wars, dying from a wound suffered at Antietam. A similar portrait of Mansfield appears on an incredibly rare $500 1874 Legal Tender Note (Fr. 185a). Heritage sold an example of this note in 2007 for $517,500.00. All three items excellent.
