Continental United States shows no Gadsden Treaty border. Large territories of Nebraska, New Mexico, Dacota, Utah, Oregon and Washington. And Canada called British America.
As a result we date this to ca. Most cities are in larger type than their states or territories. Yellowstone River is shown but no Yellowstone Park.Suez is marked, but canal not shown. Anachronistic elements present too: Tasmania called Van Dieman's Land, Arizona and Idaho Territories not present. Transatlantic "Submarine cable" shown with two lines suggesting completion after installation of second line 1866. Ecliptic, analemma, and makers mark. A few small surface stains, scuffs and yellowed varnish.
