This 1/6 tintype has excellent contrast. My scanner doesn't do the image justice. There is a contemporary I.D. on the
back of the image stating: "John L. Roe - Surgeon; 137th Regt; Indiana Volunteers. This same John Roe also served as the
Asst. Surgeon in the 13th IN Volunteers where he saw service in many of the Virginia campaigns. Surgeon Roe is seated next
to a table with his western style hat at his elbow. He wears a shell jacket & has either a book or a dag case in his hand.
The surgeon's cheeks and the table cloth have been tinted buy the photographer. The image comes in 1/2 of a case.#1688=$410.00
