Civil War Sixth Plate Tintype Double Armed Union Cavalryman

glass eyePRICE…SOLD


Here is a very nice sixth plate tintype of a Union cavalryman who appears to be missing an eye.  He holds a cavalry officer’s sabre in one hand and has a Colt 1860 Army revolver tucked in his belt.  He is dressed in full uniform with his coat buttons, belt plate, and sword hilt tinted gold.  The image is housed in a black Union case with floral and scroll designs. Overall very good. A beautiful and interesting image indeed.oneeye
