Graded POOR 1 by SGC (submitted by REA). Very pleasing modestly graded example of Cap Anson from the N173 Old Judge cabinet series. The N173 Anson is one of the most impressive of all Cap Anson cards, and one of the great classics and most sought-after of all nineteenth-century cards. The actual mounted photograph has a staple hole in the lower left, a scratch in the lower right, minor surface wear, and a few extremely light stains, very likely the result of having been exposed to moisture. The mount has some corner and edge wear, along with a crease on the lower left. The blank reverse reveals evidence of album removal. Despite these faults, still a very attractive card. Technically grades Poor, but with a much stronger appearance. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
