ca. 1902 PHOTOGRAPH OF A BATTALION SERGEANT MAJOR IN THE 12TH US CAVALRY TAKEN IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS:  A real nice sepia toned photograph of a Battalion Sergeant Major in the 12th Cavalry Regiment taken by photographer in San Antonio, Texas.  The image is a long oval mounted on card stock.  The Sergeant Major is dressed in his dress blue uniform and the chevrons on his sleeve and his collar insignia are very legible.  The Sergeant Major is not identified, however there is an impression of writing on the back of the mounting card that appears to have been a name or location.  This is a nice image of a Texas Border region soldier during the late Krag period.  SOLD

NOTE:  The image is considerably sharper with more contrast and no fading as seems to be apparent in the photograph below.  A strong, clear image.
