1/6 Ambrotype Civil War Soldier Possibly Georgia or Alabama Confederate CSA
Sixth-plate ambrotype of a Civil War soldier wearing a dark uniform with painted buttons and a key around his neck which appears to be tucked into his front jacket pocket. This soldier was found in Alabama, and a CW collector who saw this. He was possibly a member of the Alabama or Georgia infantry, however he is not identified and no info other than location it was found is known. Of his buttons might be a clue.
Glass ambrotype with painted black metal plate behind the image in the case. In half of a case, in very good to excellent antique condition. One corner of the preserver is broken but everything stays securely together when cased.
