Wonderful and quite rare, 1860's, ninth plate Ambrotype of an Unidentified Civil War Soldier . This great Civil War Soldier Ambrotype measures approx. 2" x 2 1/2" and pictures the young bearded soldier in uniform and wearing his kepi. The image is not cased but the ORIGINAL PAPER TAPE SEALS ARE INTACT AND THE PLATE HAS NEVER BEEN OPENED. This beautiful Civil War soldier Ambrotype is in excellent condition with no breaks, cracks, surface loss, scratches or surface crazing. The focus is very sharp (even sharper than it appears in the digital images below), the contrast is strong and the tonality rich. The image came from an estate in North Eastern Massachusetts and we believe that it may have New Hampshire ties. Of course, it is 100% guaranteed original and of the period. A simple yet striking Civil War Soldier Ambrotype with intact seals and a fantastic addition to any collection!!! Please add $4.75 p&h to bid price (all shipping done USPS Priority Mail).
Insurance is required on all purchases of $100 or more and optional on all purchases under $100 (though strongly recommended). Overseasshippping is extra and cost will be quoted at bidders request. Massachusetts residents must add 5% sales tax.
