CIVIL WAR Naval Officer Double Breasted FROCK & EPAULETS old CDV Photo c1860s

Private original carte de visite (cdv) photograph.  Image itself remains in good to very good condition.  Wear to upper right corner area as seen.  Some light scuffing to background.  Board mount is reflective of age appropriate light wear.   Pencil numbers on back are my personal stock/inventory numbers and will be erased before photo ships.  All other writing or marks will be left untouched.  Professionally and/or studio photographed circa 1860's by Clarke's Union Gallery, New York, New York, USA.

Please take into consideration that I am dealing with a used and OLD product so condition will seldom be mint and most old photographs do have ordinary wear particularly to their corners and edges along with some light to moderate age discoloration and/or soiling, thus I will not elaborate on these issues.  However, please review all pictures provided to determine your own condition opinion.  ALL SERIOUS issues affecting the item, i.e. cuts, tears, heavy soiling and/or age discoloration beyond AVERAGE WEAR will be stated in the item description at top.  IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS CONCERNING CONDITION NOT ADDRESSED IN IMAGES PROVIDED OR IN ITEM DESCRIPTION, PLEASE JUST ASK BEFORE YOU BUY.

Before bidding or buying, please please take a moment to read the Shipping, Terms of Sale, and About Us categories so that no MISUNDERSTANDINGS occur and for complete details regarding return policy. 

PayPal is preferred.  Buyer can pay directly for single item or wait for invoice on multiple items to take advantage of combined shipping.  If not otherwise mutually agreed upon, payment is due within 5 days. Please contact me if you wish to bid/buy other items.  If payment is not received in a timely fashion or I have not heard from you, eBays Non-Paying Bidder policy will be engaged.  Thank you.

For US BIDDERS, shipping charges are FIRST CLASS MAIL for any number of photos and will include insurance on any single item or multiple items over $20.00.  Waiting for my invoice before making payment will be appreciated as I can adjust shipping charges (combined) as necessary.  I practice give a little, take a little (hence the flat rate).  Please bear in mind that all materials used to ship your photos securely do not come COST FREE for seller. 

On insured items, should a problem occur, contact your local post office, obtain the necessary forms, and I will help in any way possible to expedite an insurance claim. 

For INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS, shipping is a flat rate for First Class International Mail for one to any number of photos.  It does NOT include insurance, import duties, and/or taxes. These charges are the buyer's responsibility therefore please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying and DO NOT confuse them for additional shipping charges. They aren't!  When applicable due to size and secure packing of your item, customs documents will be completed accordingly and WILL NOT be marked below value or as GIFTS; US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior therefore no documents will be falsified.  Please understand that in the unlikely event item(s) "get lost" or damaged, having experienced it first hand as a buyer it seems neither country wants to take responsibility and most insurance claims are useless thus all monies WILL NOT be refunded!  Sorry for this however most situtaions can usually be worked out to mutual satisfaction so please contact me if this should happen.

For ALL BIDDERS, I usually ship within 3 BUSINESS days, if not sooner, of receipt of monies or cleared payments but on occassion, can run a little behind. For those seldom occassions, I ask for your understanding as things CAN and DO happen.



All items sold, unless otherwise specified, are in used and as is condition. Please note that while every effort is made to describe all items as accurately as possible, including any damages and/or imperfections that are seen, two people do not always think alike therefore please ask all your questions before bidding or buying and not after you have won an item or bought it.  I start my auctions and store listings at what I believe to be a fair and reasonable price based on current market trends, resources, and community feedback. Ultimately, you the buyer, decide what an item is WORTH to YOU and I will not be responsible for "auction fever" bidding. While I do allow a "Return Policy", please understand it applies ONLY to items GROSSLY MISREPRESENTED by seller otherwise ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  Buyer needs to contact seller within THREE days if there is a problem but seller will allow up to 14 days to return the item at BUYER'S EXPENSE. Since photos are retained for all items sold and shipped for longer than fourteen days, if returned item varies from photos of how it looked when it was shipped, NO REFUND will be given.   I adhere to this policy, with or without eBay's support so please make sure you can too before bidding/buying. Thank you.

I have been selling on eBay for a number of years and, for the most part, have enjoyed every minute of it.  I/we started out in buying/selling/trading antiques and collectibles long before it was ever brought to the internet or even considered "fashionable" to do so and have learned many lessons along the way.  And while we are not perfect, we try real hard to provide a quality product at a fair price with honesty, reliability and good serivice.

However lately there have been many questions by buyers, at least for me, as respects shipping charges so I have taken the opportunity to provide a little more information in this category.

First, I am happy to combine shipping for more than one item but PLEASE, FOR AUCTIONS/PURCHASES ENDING IN THE SAME WEEK ONLY AS I TOO NEED TO PAY MY BILLS :o)  Secondly, as stated, shipping includes any number of photos and will very rarely be higher than listed except in unusual circumstances or packaging.  Finally, if you have a concern with the amount charged and readily disclosed for shipping kindly don't bid as quite frankly I believe it to be unfair to rate a seller low on shipping charges when it is stated up front how much shipping will be.  A good portion of the time, I am under what actual shipping/handling ends up costing me, especially on multiple items, insured items or priority mail shipments.  I ALWAYS refund shipping difference if I am way over in charges.  Therefore, if you think that what I am requesting for securely packing and shipping your item(s) is too high, don't bid or refrain from rating in this category.  Thanks for understanding.
