“Yours, Truely [sic] F.W. Talmage” written in the back in tiny and beautiful (yet hard to read) cursives.
We can estimate this CDV to be from between 1864 and 1869 by the border style with one thick line, the other thin. Then we can narrow it down further to in-between 1864 and 1866 because during those two years the tax stamp helped fund the Civil War.
