Cancel Method: Handstamped - Monogram

Cancel Color: Black

Cancel or Company Type: Photographer

Beautiful negative CB monogram handstamp with exterior double dotted circle. The previous owner attributed the cancel to Charles Bartlet, but I believe that to be inaccurate. Bruce Baryla included an example of this cancel in his CD-ROM reference on Civil War photographer cancels, as he had an example on an unmarked CDV, so it is likely a photographer, but we just don't know whom.

If you have any information or comments about this cancel or stamp, please email me.
