Ambrotype image of two Civil War soldiers, both with cigars in their mouths, ID pin (SOLD)

Out of Stock


Product Description

This is another great item being offered, it is a full-case 1/6 plate Civil War ambrotype. It is of two soldiers sitting side by side, each resting his arm on the others shoulder. Their forage cap brims are upturned, as they puff on their cigars. It is in a full leatherette case.

The soldier on the left has a shield shaped identification badge pinned onto his coat. Their expressions are either play acting for the camera, or they had a bit too much to drink. My personal opinion while looking at a close-up, makes me think that they both have been drinking quite a bit. There is no identification of these soldiers.

With Civil War images, the value and demand is based on the content, and this one has several. Two soldiers in one image, smoking cigars, and the ID pin – a little under the weather also contributes. This would make an excellent addition to any Civil War collection.
