Rare 1860s Civil War Era Tintype Photo Post Mortem Boy Propped in Chair 6438(x)
Original tintype, post mortem boy in chair, early-1860s, sixth-plate in half of its original case behind mat and cover glass. Very good or better antique condition as far as damage goes, with no bends. The image itself looks a bit shadowy in my indoor office lighting, but the details improve a lot in bright light or daylight... Pic #2 is a scan. If you anticipate this image will look somewhere in between Pic 1 and Pic 2 you will not be disappointed.
