    This appears to be from the time period from 1864-1875...It shows in quote The Second Archbishop of New York, but McCloskey was actually named the 1st Cardinal of the Western Hemisphere in 1875 which far out weights his Archbishop status...It is warn and in the type of condition you would expect to find something as old as this, and does not appear to be a reproduction. It was found at a yard sale and was bought for $1 for the FRAME...The lithograph was actually underneath another picture. I have read a ton about Lithographs from the period from Currier and Ives and the value ranges are all over the place...This being a portrait and of someone of significance in American Roman Catholic History could be worth how much? Is the frame and ornate detail a good find for a dollar in its self...Trying to figure this out!!!

    Thank you,

      I am no expert on dollar values, but I do know that the subject of the print is someone important in New York and Church history, and, of course Currier and Ives has value. The frame is very nice, so I think you did very well with your dollar. I wish I'd been at that yard sale. I have another Currier and Ives of Mc Closkey as a Cardinal, so this must be an earlier one.

      I just bought this same frame for $10. Because of your post I noticed another picture underneath!!! The problem is the picture frame is sealed and I am to chicken to open it. Cannot believe the date this is from. Thank you for your post. You have been extremely helpful.
