Tin Type, just your ordinary citizen doing his duty for his country during our civil war. This is a 1/6 plate in a very nice gutta percha case. The image has been "glamorized" by the photographer who added shiny brass buttons and stripes so that the soldiers family and sweetheart could be doubly proud of him. Look closely at his face and see the dark circles under his sad and tired eyes...

Lightly tinted, added gilt, some scratches to image and tarnish to metal insert. Interior velvet is in wonderful condition as is the exterior of the gutta percha case., snap closure is tight. I did not take it out of the case so I don't know if there is any further information behind the image.

measurement closed case:2.5" x 3" x3/4"
