The subject appears in uniform dress in one image, and in civilian dress in the other. The uniformed image is a ruby ambrotype which comes in full leather case with oval brass matte & blue velvet interior. It features a clean-shaven, early twenty-ish male in a seated pose, clad with distinctive 5th New York red piping & corporal stripes, with kepi sitting adjacent to left wrist. Exhibits light tinting of cheeks and uniform. Also exhibits gray emulsion round the outer oval edges, most pronounced in the lower section. Image quite sharp in other respects. Case outer extremities exhibit light wear and rubbing. Else VG.

Second image features same subject in civilian clothes. Half case ambrotype with brass matte. Subject wears jacket and white shirt with black cravat. Image exhibits the same tinting and same gray emulsion round its oval edges as its mate. Four small chipped spots, between the subject's elbows and coat, and at the bottom trouser area. Light wear to outer case leather. Highly attractive nonetheless, with accompanying Zouave image. Superb Zouave collectible.
