Four Cased Ninth Plate Portraits of Civil War Soldiers
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Likely all federals, to include: two anonymous ruby ambrotypes, one of a very young soldier in an army greatcoat and the other of a slim fellow in a sack coat; plus a tintype of a young man wearing a kepi, the back of the case inscribed in pencil, "Taken this 29th day of July 1863 John H Carter Presented to H W Carter"; plus a tintype of a bearded soldier housed in a thermoplastic Union case molded with patriotic motifs.

From a private West Virginia collection

Generally very good condition; two lids are detached because of dried binding; the patriotic case with one small chip.
