Image is a waist-up view of a soldier wearing the Model 1858 dress hat also known as the “Hardee Hat” complete with a hat cord and two infantry hunting horns arranged one over the other, on the front of the crown. One of the insignia is right side up and the other is upside down. He also wears a dark frockcoat buttoned at the top and waist but open at the mid-section. The infantry insignia and coat buttons are touched with gold gilt paint.

Clarity and contrast are excellent. The plate itself is clean.

Image comes in a union case with a raised patriotic decoration of a large six-pointed star with a patriotic shield at center. The large star is surrounded by 34 smaller stars with a riband above it that reads “UNION.” Case is excellent but one of the 34 small stars is missing on one side. [ad][ph:L]
