    Description

    Roscoe Conkling Signed Mathew Brady Carte de Visite. 2.3" x 4", a profile portrait from life. Brady's photostamp appears on the front below the albumen and again on the verso, above which Conkling has signed. "May 1866" is written in period ink on the verso. Gently toned, the image retains strong contrast and detail. Conkling was a U.S. Senator from New York and a prominent Radical Republican during the war and Reconstruction period.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
