Encapsulated and assessed “Authentic” by SGC. Civil War Major General George B. McClellan is the subject of this 1860s Carte de Vista. The sepia-toned likeness shows the revered hero with his right hand in his waistcoat (a la Napoleon). There are surface spots along the periphery on the front. The reverse is clean, save for one small toning spot. Light trimming contributes to the technical grade. The image is dated 1862 and was produced by E&HT Anthony from a Mathew Brady negative.
