Posted By: <b>Jimmy</b><p>Scott,<br /><br />any advertising on the back? I would think the back is blank, the photo is from the 1880-1890s - but the cabinet is later after his fighting days. You can tell by the text under the photo.<br /><br />Jimmy

Posted By: <b>Scott Sarian</b><p>Thanks Jimmy.<br /><br />The photo was sent to me to see if I knew anything about it. I'll be able to see it in person this coming weekend, so I'll know more about it then. I had it pegged as 1890s, but good to know your opinion that if it has the text as it does, that it probably is from later.<br /><br />Thanks,<br />Scott

Posted By: <b>Scott Sarian</b><p>Thanks; appreciate the feedback.<br /><br />I imagine it's hard to place a value on it, since we don't know the exact issue? It does have a slight tear on the right-hand side as well...
