A nice quarter plate tintype of a young Union cavalryman posing in a photographers studio. He sits on a small chair and holds a Colt Army revolver across his chest.
A mangled slouch hat sits atop his head and he wears a cavalry shell jacket. The image is in very good condition with some emulsion loss. There is also a spot around the mans shoulder where someone previously attempted to clean the image before thinking better of itthere are some scratch marks there now, visible at a tilt. The image is housed in a full leather case with repaired hinge.
