Civil War carte de visite (cdv) with a "from life" version of Lady Liberty. Most era depictions are artistic versions.
This cdv is by Fredricks of NY and dates from the era (1861- 65).
The US flag is especially interesting. It is a large era flag. It is two sided-- some of the backside stars are visible near the front side stars. Quality focus even shows the stitching in some areas.
My cdv and my photos, so do not copy without permission.
