Full standing image of a soldier posed by a cloth covered table. The subject wears a dark forage cap and frock coat with light vest and trousers. The subject also wears canvas and leather camp shoes instead of the usual brogans. On each sleeve he has Hospital Steward type chevrons but without the caducei. Similar chevrons are on display at the Civil War Medical Museum in Frederick, Maryland and are identified as being for “Ambulance Corpsmen.”

Image has very good clarity and excellent contrast. There is an ink smudge off to the right of the subject’s head and some emulsion loss along the left edge. Both are minor.

Image is housed in the usual scroll decorated brass mat and frame. There is no case.

The soldier is not identified but with the image is a post card photo of the Moody family farm in Jackson, New Hampshire. Card is dated 1929 and was sent to a family in Massachusetts.

With the photo is the original receipt from 1998 stating that the image came from a house in Wellesley, Massachusetts.

Nice image of a soldier wearing rare insignia. [ad]
