SALE! 15% OFF! Offered is a 140 year old oval cut tintype of a young man. Thanks to some notes entered on the back, we are able to date this and we know who it was. This 21 year old man was born in 1857, so we know the year this was produced was 1878. He is a nice looking gent dressed in a suit and sitting in semi-profile. A paper tag says this was given to Mrs. S. Geiger as this man was Stanley G(eiger) grandfather. In pencil, on the paper backing, we found " John C Geiger born 1857 age 21 years" then what we think says Ruby Miller. The tintype has been cut to the oval shape to fit a frame that is no longer present. The beige marbled paper photo mount and the roughly cut glass is present. This is 9 1/4 x 7". We will exclude the glass cover upon request. We want to emphasize again that this is a loose item, it is not tied together with a frame. Original listing price $20 Item 11459a Lot 3/1/8
