DescriptionQuarter Plate Tintype of Double-Armed Union Cavalryman. An exceptionally fine studio portrait wherein a trooper stands before a white backdrop supporting a real United States flag as opposed to the painted ones usually seen. This Yankee horse soldier is ready for action as is evidenced by his drawn saber and unholstered revolver. His belt buckle is too square for a Model 1851 sword belt plate and is likely of New York or Massachusetts issue. Buttons, kepi insignia, shoulder scales and belt plate are all painted gold. Excellent contrasts for a tintype. Case missing lid.
Estimate: $1,400 - $1,800.
