Image is a three-quarter seated view of a bearded soldier wearing the distinctive dark shell jacket with a double row of piping down the front peculiar to the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry.

The subject is posed with one hand resting on his knee and the other resting on a table that is covered with a printed cloth.

Image is very clear with excellent contrast. There is some discoloration around the edges as well as a diagonal closed crack running from the subject’s right arm, across his lap and proceeding to the left edge of the image below the table top.

Photograph comes in a full leather case with a brass mat and frame that are decorated with geometric designs and scroll decorations. Exterior is very bright and clean and has been expertly reinforced at the hinge with cloth tape of a matching color.
