Civil War tintype Union soldier boy photo American flag camp background antique
Civil War era tintype photo of a young Union soldier with American flag and camp photographer's background. Unsigned - we do not know the IDs of subject or photographer. In total it measures about 3.25"h X 2.75"w including the glass and gold framing - about sixth-plate size (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only). Antique, pre-owned, imperfect, used condition. The tintype is not cased and just has the glass and gold framing. The tintype itself is pretty bent up and looks like it's been removed a lot, but the image is still quite clear. Some loss to the image around the edges and particularly on the bottom left (see scratch in photo).
Glass is dirty/cloudy and obstructs the image considerably (please see photos). We are happy to answer any questions you may have and we always appreciate your business!
