It doesn't look dark to me but you be the judge. You can return it for any or no reason within 14 days. See the photos of this CSA soldier photograph on glass made in 1865 or before.
Yet another fine piece from the Steve Folio Collection. Plate, 3.25 by 4.25 inches, in half of a case. It would be difficult to find a nicer example. Clear and crisp on a piece of dark glass, absolutely NO problems, and should be in a museum. If you want just one ambro of a Reb, this is the one you want.This image is so clear you could probably make out his buttons if you had the correct magnification.
