    Civil War Period Half Plate Tinted Tintype of an Armed Union Soldier. Approximately 4 ¼" x 5 ½", housed in a S. Peck & Co. geometric/scroll pattern light brown Union case (Krainik 16, listed as scarce) and complete with brass mat, cover glass and brass preserver. This large image features a soldier standing in from of a studio backdrop painted with tents and a flag. He poses standing, holding his musket, mounted with bayonet wearing his uniform, overcoat and kepi. Something, perhaps a small pistol, appears to be tucked in his belt. His cheeks have been lightly tinted, and his uniform has been tinted blue. There are some minor scuffs and shallow bends on the plate, the majority of which affect the background only, but the image remains sharp and clear. The case has a few small chips along the edges and a few stress cracks, but the hinges and closure are still in working condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
