Click on an image to enlarge

This is a great looking 6th plate ambrotype image of a Civil War Union officer in his frock style military coat. The single row of buttons going down the front lets us know that he is a lower ranking officer like a Lieutenant or Captain. These ambrotype images were produced on red tinted glass. This is the size that is known to collectors as the sixth plate size. It measures about 2.75 inches by 3.25 inches in overall size. This image is vividly clear. The image shows the seated waist up view of the soldier. Around his waist he wears the eagle style sword belt buckle with the brass adjuster still visible. He has his foot officer style sword on one side of his buckle and the other has the brass backstrap of his Colt revolver still visible. It looks like a model 1860 Colt Army revolver to me. As you can see this is just a beautiful image. The image is in a complete thermoplastic gutta percha case. This is a great looking ambrotype image of an armed Union officer.
