Sixth Plate Tintype Union Veteran Reserve Corps Soldier

soldierPRICE…SOLD

Sixth plate tintype of a soldier wearing a grayish or light blue coat, eagle belt buckle, and McDowell-style federal forage cap — probably a Veteran Reserve Corps soldier though the coat lacks the trim and piping of the standard VRC uniform. There is possibly a knife or pistol in his belt but I cannot make it out 100%. Perhaps you will have better luck. Housed in a geometric/scroll Union case. Condition: Tintype with horizontal hairline cracks. Case missing a 0.25 x 1 in. section of the edge.
