RARE 1860s CDV PHOTO OF A HANGING

This is rare subject matter, and not for the faint of heart. The tree to our left, the high tree branch, and the body suspended on a rope. There appears to be a dead body on the ground on the way to the small log cabin.

1860s vintage, judging by the mount. Pencil on reverse: "Helena, Montana" and "1865 (?)"

NO RESERVE

Condition:Stains to the left. Sometimes, photographers did a little touch-up work for dramatic effect, but possibly just stains. Light soiling. Good condition otherwise.

Estimate: $2,000 - $5,000
