CWI 1. Confederate 1/4 Plate Ambrotype of officer wearing a CS “Sardine Lid” Belt Plate.
This may be the only known image of a Confederate soldier wearing the rare CS “Sardine lid” Belt Plate. I can tell that our unidentified subject is an officer because he has insignia boards on his shoulders. He is wielding what appears to be an 1820′s Saber. Image has good detail despite some light scratches.
CWI 2. Confederate Infantryman 6th Plate Tintype.
Here is a real jewel of an image. Armed with a German Rifle and wearing a plain tongue Leech and Rigdon two piece belt buckle. Probably a Tennessee soldier.
CWI 3. Confederate Infantryman 9th Plate Ambrotype.
Unique highly detailed image of a young man verbally purported to be from Texas. He has a Large Bowie knife, Pettingill revolver and a two piece plain tongue Artillery style buckle. Great looking image.
CWI 4. U.S. Infantryman Ambrotype.
Crystal clear 6th plate Ambro of a Western Theatre Yankee wearing a Hardee hat with bugle insignia. The image has no case but the clarity and content compensates.
CWI 5. Gaines Mill, VA. Battlefield Stereoview.
This is a very scarce stereoview. I have never seen this one before. A very detailed and gruesome shot that captures three dead Yankees where the fell in battle. You can clearly see a musket with bayonet affixed with the dead soldier in the foreground.
CWI 6. Identified and published Tintype of a Confederate Infantryman.
Thomas Kitchen of Co. I, 8th GA. Infantry is shown sporting a large Bowie Knife and a Smooth-bore Musket. This 6th Plate Tintype is somewhat dark but the content is killer.
