INDIAN WARS ERA CABINET CARD OF A CAVALRY MAN ARMED WITH A TRAPDOOR CARBINE PARTICULARLY NICE AND UNUSUAL OUTDOOR IMAGE:  This is a particularly nice cabinet card image of a late Indian Wars cavalry man, striking quite a pose as he stands on a rise above a tent encampment.  He has his trapdoor carbine over his shoulder and is dressed in the dark blue wool shirt, tan campaign hat, and high boots of the period.  His holster and dark blue Mills woven cartridge belt are also visible.  This desirable outdoor view of a single solider showing this amount of detail is considerably more unusual than the standard in-house studio photographs of the period.  The image itself measures 3" high and 2.25" wide, with the mounting card adding an inch to all sides.  The condition is quite good with no damage or scuffing to the image surface.   SOLD
