Click on an image to enlarge

Here is a nice 6th plate tintype of a young Confederate captain in uniform. The image is in good condition overall with no emulsions of flaking noted. There are some slight waves noted with no sharp creases - and mentioned for exactness. He is sitting in 3/4 seated pose, enough to see the skirt on his single breasted frock coat. He sits in front of a plain back drop, the edge of which can be seen on the left of him.

He has on an officers kepi and you can almost see the texture of the cloth as it appears to be of a jean type. You can see that the captain's bars and buttons have been gilded and sets off the picture quite nicely. Although there is no identification with this image its one that someone will be happy to own.
