A very nice tintype of an armed Union soldier. His uniform is hand tinted. A rarely seen modification to a black and white photo of the period.
Buttons and belt buckles were often tinted gold, but this has the whole uniform. Has some bends and marks (see photos) but overall very collectible image.TALL CIVIL WAR SOLDIER HAND TINTED UNIFORM 1/6 PLATE TINTYPE ARMED" is in sale since Tuesday, January 30, 2018.
