DescriptionMaj.Gen George Armstrong Custer: A Rare Civil War Tintype Image Almost certainly a Brady image, as he seems to be in the same uniform worn for those famous sittings; but we cannot recall seeing this particular pose previously.
This is a 1/9th plate tintype showing him from the knees up. Appearance is excellent, although for accuracy we note a bit of fine crazing and slight lifting of the emulsion in the field to the left of his figure. Corners clipped as shown. A rare and desirable image of one of the War's most flamboyant heroes, whose fame was only enhanced by his late exploits in the Indian Wars and untimely demise at Little Big Horn.
