Civil War Sixth Plate Ambrotype of an Armed Cavalry Officer

A pristine ruby ambrotype of a fashionably bewhiskered young first lieutenant cradling an enlisted M1840 cavalry saber. The photographer captured a demeanor that exudes serenity in spite of the obvious cockeyed medical condition. The fine portrait is, unfortunately, unidentified without any insignia that might ascertain a regiment or state.

Condition:The plate is EXC. with sharp clarity. Housed in a complete composition case.
