Soldier is holding rifle with affixed bayonet. You can see the handle & hilt of either a dagger or sword at his belt next to a canteen and on his right side at belt height he has either a cartridge pouch or holster (hard to distinguish). Under magnification you can see very fine scratches in the background and on his face and shirt that are very faint with the naked eye. Otherwise very clear and detailed.
His belt buckle has what appears to be an "OV" and another letter. Soldiers don't seem to deflate in value and has consistently gone up in value. The item "1/6th Plate Ruby Ambrotype of Civil War Soldier Rifle, Sword &Canteen" is in sale since Tuesday, August 04, 2015.
