    Cased Quarter Plate Tintype of Federal Covered Wagon. This very rare outdoor vignette shows a teamster wielding a crop while astride one of four mules hitched to a wagon. The lead team seems to be facing away from the intended direction of the vehicle. Typical mulish behavior. Beside the wagon are a soldier, his large dog and a mounted trooper. The image, though dark, seems to have problem-free surfaces. Case missing lid. Accompanying the tintype is a 1910 one-page manuscript letter from "Ma" with a transmittal envelope addressed to a Mr. George Kopp in Cincinnati. The sender is enclosing this image and states that "...the one driving the team was killed at Resaca in '64'...Photography was not so perfect in those days...but it is interesting to have a remembrance of the Civil War..."

    Estimate: $800 - $1,000.
