Rare Signed / Autographed CDV of Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee
Original CDV of Robert E. Lee, signed in original ink on the front - not a facsimile. Taken by Michael Miley of Lexington, Virginia, in 1869 while Lee was President of Washington College. On the back is the studio imprint, Boude & Miley, Lexington, Kentucky, along with a period, March 1870 handwritten inscription gifting the CDV to N. Carter, followed by some Greek letters.
CDV has a pinhole and light soiling, and a very light curved ridge in the background to the right of Lee.. This is really only visible and angles and does not show through to the back.
