Sixth plate ambrotype of a young Ohio private wearing a kepi and "OVM" belt plate, which is exceptionally clear. The subject holds his musket with bayonet attached. Over his shoulder, he carries his cartridge box and strap. A sharp image that even captures the two holes where the soldier's breastplate once was. Most soldiers removed the breastplate, as it made a perfect target on the battlefield. Housed in full case.
Some wear/tarnish along perimeter of plate where it meets the mat. Some surface wear to case. Case still maintains red velvet lining.
