This is a very unusual 1/9 plate clear ambrotype of what I believe to be a Canadian soldier holding a bayonet. Note that he wears a billbox style hat with the Unit #11 on the face. Also
a frockcoat with shoulder tabs and a white belt with a tongue and wreath style buckle. I'm guessing that is a bayonet, but I wonder if it is maybe a riding crop. The image is cracked as you
can see by the scans, but note the coloring underneath of the mat. I had not ever seen that before I took the image out of the full case that is split at the seam. Is he a British Redcoat???? #2092=$50.00
