DescriptionCased Sixth Plate Tintype of Union Bugler-cum-Infantryman. Studio images of armed Yankees are hardly rare whereas those of military musicians are quite scarce. A photograph of an armed musician, though, is almost unheard of. This fierce lad grips a bugle in his right hand while holding a musket fixed with bayonet in his left hand. Perhaps the weapon was a photographer's prop. Or, perhaps the bugle was for that matter. Insignia, buttons and oval belt plate are painted gold per the day's custom. Excellent tonal contrasts for a tintype. Case missing lid.
Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
