Quarter plate ambrotype of gentleman identified inside case as "John W. Mimms Jr. H __per, Kentucky," possibly brother to Zerelda James, wife to the infamous Jesse James. However, because no other images of John W. Mimms Jr. are known to exist, this identification cannot be confirmed. Housed in period, Littlefield, Parsons, & Co. Union case.
Flaking of the lacquer and toning of the image. Some damage to the copper mat.
