Crystal clear and perfectly focused 1/9 plate tintype of what I believe to be a cavalry trooper wearing a shell jacket with light
colored trim. Note the dapper attention to the hair and the cravat over his white vest and checked shirt. The image is so clear that
you can make out the eagle buttons on his shell jacket. And, by the way, the guy looks a lot like Sam Elliott. The thermoplastic case
has a chip at the clasp, otherwise it is in perfect condition and is a lavender cameo. The case probably is worth about $150 by itself. #5615=$285.00
