Half plate ambrotype of US Regular Army officer armed with sword. Image was found uncased so it has scratches and scuffs. Photo does not have a case, just the preserver, mat, and glass. Nice big photograph from the early days of the war. Measures 5.5 x 4.25 inches.
There are many collectors who have questioned if this isn't an early war Virginia Militia officer. Inside his wreath it looks like it says UA, not VA.
