DescriptionCased Sixth Plate Tintype of Identified Massachusetts Draftee. The sitter in this photograph has a Federal forage cap by his side, the crown of which carries an infantry bugle, a "C" and the number "19". A paper label behind the image that reads "John Davis" in type augments this information. Since a John Davis served in Company "C", 19th Massachusetts Infantry, we have a pretty solid match here. Davis, an Englishman, was drafted into the regiment a mere month after it saw service at Gettysburg. No doubt there were plenty of vacancies to fill. A thin vertical crease has resulted in some emulsion loss not affecting the subject.
Estimate: $300 - $500.
