    I purchased this CDV of a West Point Cadet. The cadet looks very proud in his uniform. The back is marked with Charles D. Fredricks & Co. "Specialite" 587 Broadway, New York which was in business from around 1857-1862. The writing on the back states that this is a cadet circa 1861-1862 and there appeasers to be a signature of some type as well. If any one knows what it says I would be interested. Thanks

      Nice image-- I've seen this one before. Not sure on the ink notation on the back.

      Fredericks was in business much longer than the time period cited. In the early 1850s he was a daguerreian, and he continued as a NY photographer after the Civil War.

      With that being said, the cdv is most likely Civil War or soon after.

      Scott thanks for the information. Was that not the correct time frame for that particular backmark for Fredricks?

      Not 100% certain, but I believe that was used up to the 1870s.

      I have seen some round mount images with the same backmark. The square corners on yours should put it into the 1860s.
