This is a nice sixth plate tintype of a young double-armed Federal soldier sporting a pair of Allen & Wheelock sidehammer revolvers in his belt. He wears a forage cap atop of mop of hair, as well as a standard four-button sack coat. He is seated in a studio with his arms at his side. The image is a little bit dark.
There are a couple of very slight cracks in the varnish off to the left side. This great image is housed in a functional full leather case with brass latch. Please see my other items for more interesting and original Civil War pieces.
