I have just stubmled upon a CDV that I bought from a guy. I think it is sort of rare, but I want your opinion on this thing.
I believe it shows a civilian standing proudly and defiantly next to a hand made First National Flag of the Confederacy. It looks to have 11 stars on a close up. 10 in a circle and one sort of off center.
Now, I've seen all sorts of military flags in photos, but I have hardly ever seen a civilian Confederate flag. What doe you all think?
Unfortunately, there is no back mark on this one to tell us where it was from, but under a jewelers loop, it is obvious that this is a continuous tone photo and not a printed or computer generated one. It is the real deal age wise, at least.
There is a close up of the flag.
