Interesting pose of Brooklyn's George Pinkney from the N172 Old Judge "Long Unnumbered Series", identified as pose 370-3 in Miller, Gonsowski and Masson's guide.  The image, which is perhaps a little light is positioned up into the upper lefthand corner.  The SGC 5 grade is quite high for an N172 and the card appears as pose 370-4 in their pop report. The reverse looks its age and not in a bad way, with a couple of small foxed spots and indications of handling present after 140 years.
