Sixth Plate Ambrotype of Armed Federal Cavalryman

An unidentified ruby ambrotype of a grizzled older cavalryman holding his saber in one and the scabbard in the other. The bearded private wears a twelve button shell jacket and rectangular eagle belt plate devoid of any detail. The image is early as the presence of the leather over-the-shoulder strap will attest.

Condition:The plate is dark with very low contrast showing a wide area of tarnish and minor abrasions around the mat opening. Clarity is just average, G. Housed in a complete composition case.

Estimate: $500 - $700
