Ninth Plate Ambrotype of Yankee Soldier Wearing Twelve-Button Shell Jacket

Item No. 1749898

Offered here is a nice 1/9 plate Civil War ambrotype featuring a bearded enlisted man. He poses Napoleon-style, with his hand tucked into his jacket. He wears a twelve-button shell jacket with two buttons at the cuff. All the buttons appear to be of the smaller cuff-size variety. He is possibly an artilleryman or cavalryman, but no piping is visible to suggest his service branch. The photographer applied a light rouge to his cheeks. The image is house in a full leather case with good hinge and functioning hook & eye closure.
