According to my information on the Meserve collection, Brady and Gardner supplied E. and H.T. Anthony & Co of New York with Brady negatives after they had been used for the custom trade.
Brady was given credit on the back of Anthony cards (cartes de visites).
In 1861 Brady made $4000 dollars on this arrangement.
The back reads
Published by E. & H. T. Anthony & Co.from the photographic Negatives in Brady's National Portrait Gallery
Frederick Meserve bought 15000 to 18000 glass negatives from Anthony's in 1902.
