$395.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2022-756

Tintype of two unidentified Federal soldiers seated side by side.

The soldier on the left wears a dark kepi with a circular disc touched with gilt on the front of the crown. Looking closely with a jewelers loop no decoration can be discerned on its surface and it may be a plain metallic 1st Corps badge that the photographer gilded. This subject also wears a dark frockcoat buttoned only at the throat with corporal’s stripes on each sleeve and a veteran’s stripe on each cuff as well as light trousers with dark NCO leg stripes and a light vest that is partially open to revel a checkered shirt.

The soldier seated at right rests his hand on the shoulder of the previous subject. He wears a dark low crowned slouch hat, dark frockcoat buttoned only at the throat, dark vest and light trousers. He also has veteran stripes on his sleeves.

Both subjects have tinted cheeks and gilt buttons.

Contrast and clarity are very good. The plate is also clean and in very good condition.

Photo comes with the decorative brass mat and stamped brass frame within a union that has a geometric exterior decoration with very minor edge wear.    [ad] [ph:L]
