Item No. 4957217

A nice 1/8 plate tintype (2 1/2" x 3 3/4") of a handsome young private of Company G the 9th Pennsylvania National Guard. The man stands in full gear with rifle, bayonet, knapsack with blanket roll, haversack, canteen, kepi, and five-button sack coat. He completes his look with a pair of white gloves. The badges on his cap are the crossed rifles, "9," and "G." A portion of his brass belt buckle is visible, revealing the "P" of an "N.G.P." buckle (National Guard of Pennsylvania). The photographer's backdrop is a landscape scene, with a tree to the soldier's side and a fur pelt under his feet, all giving the appearance that the man is outdoors. This is a post-Civil War image, circa 1870. The image is in very good condition with surface scratches on the plate, but it displays very nicely under the glass. It is housed in a half thermoplastic case.
