Although the contrast on this 1/9 clear ambrotype is a little soft, the focus is very good and the image is clear. Note the red tinted "ribs" on the chest of this soldier's uniform.
I've seen this on identified Mississippi soldiers. Also, the unusual hat with the brass eagle device makes me think this is very early war. The buttons don't appear to have a pattern on
them and appear to be simple disk buttons. The image comes in a full case that has been split at the spine and does not have an identification. #7030=$395.00
