Sixth-plate tintype of an unidentified Union private posed standing with his musket by his side. He wears a slouch hat with a low, rounded crown, dark four button sack coat and trousers that have been tinted sky-blue. He also wears his cartridge box and sling, minus the breastplate, waistbelt with cap box, empty bayonet scabbard and Pattern 1839 oval US plate that is slightly askew. Beside him he holds his Model 1861 Springfield with fixed bayonet. His buttons and belt plate have been lightly touched with gilt paint.

Contrast and clarity are good. The plate has some minor emulsion loss along the left side of the image but it does not touch the subject.

Decorative brass mat and frame are present.

Image is housed in a union case that is in very nice condition with a raised scrollwork decoration.  [ad][ph:L]
