This is a mint and beautiful image of Doctor Theophilus Fischer of Philly. He is a young man, in his twenties, with hand tinted pink cheeks. This old tintype photo is in beautiful condition. Found in Michiana, Berrien County, Michigan.

We found evidence of a doctor and pharmacist Theophilus Fischer in online searches. In 1864-66 the US government taxed photography to help pay for the American Civil war. Revenue stamps were placed on the back of photos, and cancelled by the photographer. CDVs with revenue stamps are collectible in their own right for stamp collectors and vintage photography collectors. It is a wonderful way to date a Civil War era photograph. This CDV has a revenue stamp.

Found in Public Records:
Fisher, Theophilus: 195th Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry (served 1 year, 1864-1865) Union. COMPANY: G. Was he a Civil War surgeon?

A beautiful old Fischer family Civil War related piece.

Debra Clifford Ancestorville Genealogy  Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
