Scarce Whipple Havelock Hat 9th Plate Tintype of an Union Soldier
Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very nice 9th plate ambrotype image of a Civil War era soldier. These ambrotype images were produced by applying the photo emulsion onto a thin tin plate. This is the size that is referred to by collectors as the ninth plate which is 2 inches by 2.5 inches in overall size. This image is a little dark but has decent detail. He is wearing his shell style uniform. His hat is the cool part of this image. On his head he wears what is known to collectors as the "Whipple" or "Havelock" military hat. States such as New Hampshire issued some of this pattern of hats during the early days of the Civil War. These hats were designed to protect the soldier from the elements. They often had fold down sides for sun protection. The image is in the original leatherette case and the glass and brass matt remains. This is a nice original tintype image with a lot of character!
