    Confederate Triple-Armed 1/6th Plate Tintype. Staring straight into the camera, this Johnny Reb is ready for war whether fighting the enemy from a line of battle or close-up. He holds a savage clip-point bowie knife and what appears to be a .69 caliber Model 1842 musket with bayonet fixed. His belt rig carries a holstered revolver and is secured by two roller buckles. The buttons on the subject's tight gray shell jacket appear to be three-piece staff buttons and have been painted gold by the photographer. The inside of the case behind the image carries two names in pencil: J.B. Stancill and A.B. Vaughn. Excellent surfaces for a tintype, Confederate or otherwise. Wear to the leatherette case as expected.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
