He is dressed in a suit with a bow tie. The image has good clarity and contrasts well with the background. There is no back mark on the card. All the corners are crisp and straight and the image is free of stains. There is a crease in the center part of the image that goes about two inches down. It is noticeable when the light hits the image a certain way. James Garfield was born 19 November 1831 in Orange Township, Ohio. He began a career in politics at the early age of 26. He would eventually serve 9 terms in the House of Representatives. He was serving as a member of the Ohio State Senate when the Civil War broke out.
