This nice 1/8 plate tintype features a proud Yankee with a bit of a grin on his bearded face. He stands in the photographers studio wearing his wide-brimmed hat, shell jacket, and belt with round tinted plate. A large holstered revolver rests on one hip, while a smaller pistol is tucked into the belt.
The image is a bit on the darker side, but is in good shape otherwise. It comes in a full leather case with repaired hinge.
One of the two hook-and-eye closures is missing, but the remaining one gets the job done.
