An interesting image of a very casual-looking Union soldier seated before a decorative backdrop and wearing a four-button sack coat, heavy boots, and a fur hat. A cigar can be seen dangling between his lips.The plate itself is trimmed to 2 3/4 x 4. Its slightly smaller than a true quarter plate, but too large for a sixth plate or eighth plate.
It is in excellent condition with no bends and only some light crazing through the lower half of the image. The image comes housed in a leather half case.
