However a strong silver emulsion makes up the foundation and background of the image. This aspect is uncharacteristic of a typical tintype. Thus not 100 % sure of the photo process even though I have handled 100's of tintypes dags and ambros. Perhaps a dag that has been cleaned or an unusual variant of the tintype process of the period. A great cilvil war image from the confederacy with an unusual southern non-regulation dress.The item "Civil War Confederate Soldier Dag or tin type photograph 1860's" is in sale since Monday, September 3, 2018.
