Nice clear 1/9 plate ruby ambrotype of a dark skinned man wearing a light colored coat with small brass buttons, dark vest open at the throat, white shirt and a dark bow tie. The coat he is wearing looks very much like a Confederate shell jacket but it has a button on the side of the collar. Several of the buttons down the front of the coat appear to be missing. The dark vest under the coat also looks to have small brass buttons. The complexion of the subject is dark showing he may be of Mexican or American Indian descent or a mulatto. With no information it is hard to say if he is a soldier or is wearing the uniform of one of the Indian Schools like Carlisle. Mat has flower and leaf design while the gutta-percha case has brass hinges, purple felt pad and scrollwork outer design. Case is in excellent condition.
