1860s Civil War Soldier Tintype Photograph Double Armed Union Brothers Revolver:
Rare and original, 1860’s Civil War Sixth Plate Tintype Photograph of two Union Army Soldiers (likely brothers) one of whom is armed with a rifle and a revolver. This outstanding, period Tintype Photograph measures approx. 2 5/8” by 3 1/4” and is housed in what appears to be one half of its original, pressed leather covered hard case.
The Tintype is a wonderful, 3/4 length, seated portrait of the two soldiers in uniform. The Soldier on the left wears a frock coat with chevrons that identify him as a corporal. He holds a rifle upright with his right hand and there is a revolver tucked into his belt. The other soldier also wears an enlisted man's frock coat and appears to be unarmed. Neither the soldiers nor the photographer is identified in any way.
This very rare and wonderful, Civil War Tintype Portrait of a double armed Union Army Soldier is in very good condition. The focus is sharp although overall the Image is somewhat dark. There are no significant scratches, nicks, scuffs or surface wear, although there is a bit of a halo at the matt opening. The surface is sound and stable with no crazing or flaking. The Tintype is housed in what appears to be half of its original, pressed leather covered hard case which has some wear.
A rare and wonderful, 1860’s Civil War Sixth Plate Cased Tintype Photograph of two Union Army Soldiers – one double armed with a rifle and a revolver - and a fantastic addition to any collection!!

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.
