    Photo Calling Card of Brigadier General Henry B. Carrington, circa 1910. Henry Beebee Carrington was a lawyer, professor, prolific author, and an officer in the United States Army during the Civil War and in the Old West during Red Cloud's War. This is Carrington's calling card, used in affiliation with his membership in the Timothy Ingraham Post of the Grand Army of the Republic, located in Hyde Park, Massachusetts. On recto, Carrington's name, his military titles, the name of his Post, his Post titles and dates served, and an embossed eagle, star, and American flag. The eagle and star are gilded; the American flag is red, white and blue. On verso, a printed image of a retired Carrington in richly decorated uniform, with his facsimile signature. An amazing calling card!

    Condition: Light age toning. Minor foxing and a light paper clip rust stain on recto. Minor wear to corners. Very good condition.

    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.
