CWTT122. Sixth-plate Confederate Tintype of soldier with revolver, most likely a North Carolina reb. This image came from an old collection in California. The deceased collector obtained this image decades ago which you can tell by the price he paid for this image, shown on the slip attached to the velvet mat of the split leather case which reads: “Confederate soldier tintype armed with a Colt revolver-wears typical rough depot style jacket-emulsion was imprinted at time of issue-rare $200.” I’ve never seen an image with the bump impressions such as this which appear mostly on the right side of the image with a small bit at the top by the sitter’s forehead and hair. I recently posted this on a Civil War group on Facebook and Fred Taylor was kind enough to provide information on the likely location where this image was made based on a comparison of the chair the solider is seated in to known images with the same chair. That information is posted above. The image is a bit dark, more like the image in the case. G-. $1200

CWamb40. Civil War soldier sixth-plate ambrotype. Soldier is proudly displaying his pistol. Looking at the first image of the bare plate, this may be a period ambrotype of a tintype. Image is housed in a half leather case with loose slats. G. $750
