Image shows a decidedly western theater looking Union soldier seated holding a fife in his lap.

The subject wears a dark unadorned Model 1858 “Hardee” or dress hat at a slight angle, a dark four button sack coat and light trousers. Around his waist is a thin leather belt with a holster and a plain civilian style brass buckle with tongue. The holster does look to hold a side arm but it is not visible. He holds his fife vertically with one end in his hand and the other resting on top of his thigh. Subject’s cheeks are lightly tinted.

Image is clear but the contrast could be a bit lighter. Image has numerous age spots and some slight waviness but nothing serious.

Photograph comes in a complete leather case with repaired hinge. Brass mat is decorated with pillars on each side topped by cupids. Usual stamped brass frame.

A tough looking customer regardless of what theater he served in.  [ad]
