"N.H. Mason" is clearly handwritten in old dip pen ink. This beautiful and small old 1840-50s Civil War era Reward of Merit card was found in New England in the Greenfield Massachusetts, Franklin County area. The card depicts beautiful flowers, which were hand tinted long before the advent of color printing.
The text of the printed saying reads "Forget not, ah, forget me not, when evening shades descend, for then my thot's still turn to thee, my fondly cherished friend." 1840-60's, beautiful and original!
Size: 2.75 by 1.75 inches
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)
