Wear, bends, cracking and crazing and trimming consistent with age and use.Please see all photos as they are part of the description. Measures 3 1/8" x 2 5/16" in size. Image apparently was once housed in a 1/6th PLATE HARD CASE, but was removed and trimmed just a tad on the left hand side to allow it to fit into a CDV album. If one looks close, one one can see the stippling left from a vertical oval brass matte.
And enough image is left so that it can be put back into a good 1/6th plate matte and preserver. NOTE blue tinting on pants and slight red tinting on jacket and some of shirt..... And of course the GOLD GILT on the BUCKLE, HAT BADGE and BUTTONS. A quite striking Civil War soldier image.
