Cabinet Cards

I've noticed that a lot of dealers seem to be confused about cabinet cards. The cabinet card is standardized format. A cabinet card is 4.25x6.5 inch cardboard with a print mounted on the front. While the image may vary somewhat, the image is usually around 4x5.25 inches. The borders on the front and the back of the card often have photographers marks, identifying the photographer and the location of his studio. Both of these images are somewhat different in that they do not have any advertising on the reverse of the card, and the image of the woman has no identifying marks on the front borders, either.
