1/9th Plate Tintype Photo Civil War Union Cavalry Officer Armed w/ Union Case Used. Very cool Antique 1860s Civil War period Tintype Photograph. Subject: Well seasoned Union Cavalry Officer in Uniform and Hardee Hat. Tucked in his belt is a nice Bowie knife and a revolver. Bowie knife has a decorated guard & pommel (likely German silver) with either ivory or MoP scales, and looks very Sheffield to me.His shoulders and buttons are nicely accented with gilt. Comes in a 1/9th Plate Thermoplastic Union Case, Berg 3-298 Geometric. Manufactured by Littlefield, Parsons & Co. Great addition to your collection! NOTE: Last photo is a high definition Scan of the tintype to show the detail upclose. The tintype itself shows some mild scratching and some light dust from age. The brass mat & preserver show some mild spots of patina. The Union case shows some light scratching on both sides, and some light chipping along the edges. The hinges are in good tight shape and the clasps holds shut. High Resolution Photographs are taken for your review and inspection of the item in detail.
