I was talking about myself, not you.

I contacted Dartmouth after much research in their archives, and their archivist informed me today, via email, that he believes this is late 1870s or early 1880s Dartmouth. He informed me that almost all of the different departments had their own baseball teams. They do not have this one in their archives. They are interested in acquiring the photograph

So, No proof that its Dartmouth and no proof that they used that type of D on any baseball uniform.
Well at least you have found a buyer which is good.
