JAB-21 MOORE BROTHERS PHOTOGRAPHY Brass
28mm Unique - Ex. Virgil Brand

Dies were cut in 1865 and presumably given to the Moore Brothers. They are currently unaccounted for.

The Moore Brothers were jointly in Business at 441 Main Street in Springfield, Mass. from 1859 through 1877. During the Civil War, they photographed every new recruit from Springfield and provided copies at no charge. The example pictured was acquired from the Bowers and Merena Sale of the Virgil Brand Collection in 1983. It is Unique, being the only one struck in Brass.
