Sergeant Mason's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Trade card featuring a portrait of Sergeant Mason. On the reverse is an advertisement for George Keyes' Son & Co.. Is it a portrait of the Sergeant Mason who attempted to shoot Charles J. Guiteau, the man who assassinated President James Garfield? I can't verify. It's my best guess.

Found in "Hedged In" by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps. Published by Sampson Low, 1872
