Description

    Three Military Tintypes, Civil War and Later. A nice offering of soldiers' images as follows:
    Union infantry corporal 1/6th plate tintype. This young fellow's US belt plate and eagle breast plate are quite clear, albeit reversed. He wears a 9-button standard frock coat with chevrons on each arm. His bayonet is hanging from the belt rig. Complete with brass matt. Good tonal contrasts, overall fine condition.
    Union infantry private 1/6th plate tintype. Armed with fixed bayonet and possibly dangerous, this recruit wears a sack coat, unadorned cross belt and US oval belt plate. With brass matt, some tinting to image. Very fine condition.
    New York National Guardsman 1/4th plate tintype, ca. 1880s. A great outdoors tintype showing an Indian Wars era militiaman wearing the classic M1881 helmet complete with New York State plate. The soldier's coat has indeterminate staff buttons and he's holding a breech-loading rifle with bayonet affixed. Very fine condition and quite scarce.

    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.
