Up for sale is this antique Civil War era tintype of soldier in a rare military designed daguerreotype gutta percha case. As seen in the pictures the only problem with the case is the closure that's chipped away from many years of opening and closing. The case still snaps closed tight. The inside is in very good condition. The red velvet pad is loose.
The picture was removed to discover a stamp portrait of a J. Can't find any info on this person.
The gold mat around the tintype is in a beautiful and rare design. It shows flags, swords, cannons, cannon balls, and a drum. It also says "Constitution and Union" across the bottom banner and July 4 is on bottom below the pic. Believe this to be a 1/9 plate as the pic is 2 x 2 1/2. This is a rare addition to someones collection.I do not sell international. Just wait til I send your revised invoice before paying.
