  1. Excellent condition, Jeff Davis CDV from the "Brady's National Portrait Gallery" - 625 Pennsylvania Ave - Washington, DC.--$195.SOLD

  2. Nice condition CDV of Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard.  This image is backmarked, "E. & H.T. Anthony - New York".--$195.

  3. Very odd Civil War Era CDV of General William Sherman.  In this CDV, the photographer took a picture of a Sherman image with the matting around the picture.  This CDV is actually a war date, published "picture of a picture".--$65.

  4. Extremely rare, fully cased, 1/6th plate Confederate Enlistedman wearing a butternut Confederate Richmond Depot jacket and with his .32 cal., Colt Pocket Model revolver across his chest.  This is a Ruby Ambrotype and came out of a family estate sale near Dallas, Texas, so he is very likely a Texan.  The image is cased in a very nice condition red/brown thermo plastic folding display case.  I enlarged his uniform buttons, and I believe them to be coat size Confederate Block "I" buttons.  Confederate images are super rare to come by.--$1,450.SOLD*

  5. Nice condition, Civil War date CDV of Confederate Lieutenant General Simon Boliver Buckner.  This image was produced by "E. & H. T. Anthony, New York."--$150.

  6. Quite rare, Civil War date CDV picturing over 50 Confederate Generals with each numbered and identified.  The image remains in excellent condition.--$250.

  7. Very nice crisp clear "From Life" image of President Abraham Lincoln.  The corners of the card stock are slightly rounded in order to fit in a Photo Album.  A very pretty image.--$65.SOLD*

  8. Beautiful condition, 1/6th plate tintype of a pair of Union soldiers, both fully equipped with frock coat, kepi, belt rig, cross belt plate, and musket with bayonet.  The two images are cased in an excellent condition, full thermoplastic display case.  This is a first class image with nice clarity and with both subjects having a musket.--$425.

  9. Crisp, clear tintype of a Federal Infantry soldier with his Springfield musket with bayonet across his chest and his colt revolver stuck behind his US belt buckle.  The soldier's cross belt with Eagle breast plate is also clearly visible.  The image is housed in a 1/2 hard case just as it came out of the estate.--$295.SOLD

  10. Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, matted and framed portrait of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.  This framed print overall measures 30 inches by 36 inches and is framed using acid-free matting and light filtering glass.  The framing job alone on this print costs almost $400.  Here is a super deal, BUT, you will need to pick it up here, because it is some-kinda big.  The print itself was published in 1973 by the SCV.--$350.

  11. Nice, clear, 1/6th plate tintype of a Federal Cavalryman.  He is wearing a Model 1851 sword belt buckle and rig and has a Model 1851, .36 cal. Navy stuck in behind his belt.  There is a note on the back stating, "This is believed to be Orlando Avery".  The image is mounted in a beautiful gutta percha "Union Case" by Littlefield Parsons & Company.--$350.

  12. Very nice condition, 6 1/2 inch by 4 1/4 inch albumin photograph of James H. Clanton taken by Moyston of Memphis, Tennessee.  On the reverse of the photograph, in very old period writing is, "James H. (Holt) Clanton - Lawyer - CSA Soldier - January 8, 1827 - September 27, 1871 - Killed in a gun fight on the street of the Lamar House Hotel - Knoxville, Tennessee, by a Yankee - A. Clanton."  We are unsure which James H. Clanton it is in the records as there are about three that served.  I have no doubt that with some diligent research this mystery can be solved and likely with additional information.--$48.SOLD

  13. Very rare, stamped brass, Patriotic case for a gem size tintype.  On one side, there is a spread-wing eagle with stars above, and on the reverse is a shield with stars encircling.  These Patriotic cases are quite rare, and I generally only see one or two a year.--$295.

  14. Original stereo card of Mt. Vernon (home of President George Washington) photographed by Gardner of Washington, D.C.  The image has a pleasing, yellowing, aged tone but remains complete and in good condition.--$48.

  15. Excellent condition CDV of George Smith of Co. D, 7th Iowa Infantry.  George Smith enlisted at Ft. Madison, Iowa, on 9-16-1862, and served to the war's end and mustered out in Washington on 5-26-1865.  George was in numerous battles, including both Corinth and Shiloh.  The image is nicely signed on the reverse.  Iowa images are among the harder states to find.--$145. 

  16. Clipped corner CDV of Private Ira C. Denise of Co. B, 10th Regiment, New York Infantry.  Private Denise was in the Army 1861, 1862, and until May of 1863 and saw numerous battles including Malvern Hill, Bull Run, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville.  The image is backmarked, "Photographed BY MOSES, 13 E.

  19. Very pretty GAR grouping out of Crawford County, Illinois.  This grouping consists of a GAR pin remaining in perfect condition, a ribbon for the 1911, 31st Annual Reunion of the Crawford County Veteran Association, and a CDV of the owner wearing a GAR hat.  We unfortunately do not know the soldier's name, but this is a really nice, out of the bushes, GAR grouping.--$55. for all.

  20. Very nice condition from life CDV of Lt. Col. Theodore Jones, 30th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  This image is backmarked, "Griswold and Smith, Photographers - Johnson Bldg. - Columbus O."  This is a very nice Ohio officer CDV.--$95.

  21. Nice, clear CDV of Federal General William Rosecrans.  This image is particularly relevant here at Stones River in that General Rosecrans commanded the Federal forces here at the Battles of Stones River.  His CDV is one that you do not encounter as often as many of the others.--$95.

  22. Nice bust shot image of a Federal Officer (likely from Kentucky) taken at "J. C. Elrod's Gallery - 409 Main Street - Louisville, KY."  This is a Kentucky photographer that you rarely see.--$85.

  23. Very attractive bust shot C.D.V. of Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston, C.S.A.  This image has a plain reverse with no photographer's stamp.  It's a good solid Reb image.--$150.

  24. Very attractive and quite rare to find in complete condition, 1/9th plate, ornate black thermoplastic photograph case.  This is an "Improved Union Case" by "S. Peck & Company".  The case comes complete with patriotic brass matting and glass.  The brass matting bears the logo, "The Union Now and Forever.--$150.

  26. Nice clear, full standing pose CDV of Private David B. Parsels of Co. F, 107th Regiment, New York Volunteer Infantry.  This photograph was taken by J. E. Canfield and appears to be an early war photograph.--$75.

  27. Pair of Civil War Era Victorian Age ladies in classic 1850 - 1860 "off-shoulder" gowns.  I believe that these two ladies are likely sisters in that they have similar facial traits.  Both gowns are exquisite.  One of the images is backmarked, "J.W. Molton - Artist - 214 Essex St. - Salem, Mass".  The other is backmarked, "C. Seaver, Jr. - Photographer - 27 Tremont Rd. - Boston".--BOTH IMAGES--$48.

  28. Very nice condition CDV with waist-up pose of Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard.  This CDV has a quite rare "Brady's National Portrait Gallery" backmark.--$195.

  29. Group of four Civil War/Victorian Era ladies.  Three of the four pictures are ambrotypes, two of which are ruby.  There is one tintype.  These images go from a young five-year-old girl to a 30-ish lady, and then to two elderly ladies.  I find the style of their clothing very interesting.  All four images--$125.

  30. Rare stereo card of a "Rice - Raft" with black plantation hands floating rice straw down the creek headed for Charleston.  Rice and rice straw was one of South Carolina's most valuable productions during the Civil War Era.  For over 200 years, there have been prolific rice fields all along the low land reaches of South Carolina.--$95.

  36. Fresh out of a Pennsylvania estate sale, crisp, clear CDV of a Federal Lieutenant in a Civil War Era, die stamped, black paper lacquered frame.--$175.

  37. Really pretty little lady's locket that is shaped like a bible and actually opens up and has 4 tiny little gem size tintypes on the pages inside.  There are tintypes of George Washington - Grant - Scott - and McClellan.  The back cover of the locket is not present.  I only get one of these little book lockets about every couple years.  This little locket displays beautifully opened up to the pictures inside.--$195.

  38. 1/6th plate, ambrotype of two seated Union soldiers that look to likely be brothers.  One is wearing a standard kepi, and the other is wearing an earlier Mexican War era hat.  The image is out of an Ohio estate and remains nice and clear.--$150.

  40. 1/6th plate, tintype of a double-armed, young Union Infantry soldier.  He is wearing his US beltrig with a sideknife stuck behind his belt and his Springfield musket at his side.  This image is in a 1/2 hard case and has very good content, but is unfortunately darker than we would like for it to be.  Even though somewhat dark, it is still a very nice image.--$195.

  41. 1/6th plate tintype of a fully equipped, Federal Infantry Enlistedman.  This is a standing view wearing a 9-button frock coat with US beltrig and cartridge box at his side.  His musket with bayonet stands in front of him.  The photograph is taken in front of a patriotic backdrop with tents, canons, and flags.  The photograph is housed in a 1/2 hard case and remains in good stable condition with no flaking at all.  The only negative is the image is unfortunately darker than what would be ideal.  Even though dark, the image has great content and would be a nice addition to a collection.--$175.

  42. Quite rare "From Life" Anthony CDV of Confederate General Sterling Price.  The image is a bit faded and has been trimmed to fit a 1/6th plate hard case.  It may not be in perfect condition, but it is definitely one that is hard to come by.--$150.
