#17003 - Awesome Ambrotype New York trooper in hard case
This is an awesome Sixth-Plate ruby glass Ambrotype of an old bearded Union private. Likely from New York due to cloth shoulder tabs. An early war recruit when Lincoln called for tens of thousands. Being an ambrotype, the contrast and clarity are superb. You could count his beard hairs. Sadly, no ID yet known. It comes in a stunning gutta percha hard case in the "bee hive" decorative motif. Maker's name in case behind image! The brass face mat has patriotic motifs of flags, ship and cannon. Some minor surface scratches but only seem to add to its authentic history! For the truly discriminating collector.
