#15228 - Ninth Plate ruby ambrotype Old Fuzzy Beard trooper
This is an original, early Civil War era ninth-plate ruby glass Ambrotype. It shows an older Union recruit. This private has a massive fuzzy chin beard which was unusually colored light brown by the original photographer. (The old boy's vanity request?) Buttons also highlighted. The soldier's shell jacket bears shoulder tabs, so could be from New York state. Slight solarization ring at fancy original brass mat opening. Comes in a half leatherette case. No ID yet known.
