Ninth Plate Tintype of Soldier Wearing Schuykill Arsenal Jacket - Full Union Case

159.99

Item No. 5448166

This nice 1/9 plate ambrotype features a Union soldier seated in a photographer's studio and wearing a Schuykill Arsenal jacket over his vest. The fob of his pocket watch is visible hanging from a vest button hole. His Schuykill jacket has eleven staff-size buttons and a low collar with a single button on each side. The photographer tinted his cheeks red and his buttons gold. The image is housed in a full thermoplastic case that's a little rough around the edges.

For a look at an equivalent jacket, see Heritage Auctions' December 2014 auction lot #38105.
