This sixth plate tintype features a woman seated to the left of a Union Soldier, who appears to be wearing a New York shell jacket. We can see the staple markings of a New York jacket in this photo: piped cloth epaulettes, piped front trim, 8 buttons (assuming the 8th is tucked under the gentleman’s hands), piping on the sleeves denoted by two cuff buttons on each sleeve. The only thing we cannot see is the waist straps. He wears a slouch hat atop his head. He sits with his legs crossed and his hands folded on his lap.

The thin woman seated next to him wears a lovely plaid print dress with bishop sleeves and a white collar. There doesn’t appear to be a brooch at her neck but there is gilt where one would be placed thanks to a photographer with creative license. She holds her hands on her lap.

There is a three-cent cancelled tax stamp on the reverse with the ink signed date of 10/64.

The photograph overall is in good condition. There are no pushes or bends to the tin. However, there is minor disintegration of the emulsion on the soldier’s beard. Luckily, the beard is so dark that the lines and minor cracking are well hidden. The mat is tarnished on the bottom left. The keeper has several pushes to the corners; the upper right corner is broken and missing.

This image comes housed in a leatherette case; the spine has been repaired with black tape on both the inside and outside. The red velvet cushion is in place. No ID is present in the back of the case.

This image comes from the Ray Richey collection of images.  [cls] [ph:m]
