  1. Absolutely beautiful condition, 1/9th plate, folding red/brown, thermoplastic Daguerreotype case.  This case is manufacturer marked, "Littlefield Parsons & Co." and is patent dated October 14, 1856, and April 21, 1857.  If you happen to have a very nice 1/9th plate image worthy of a super-nice case, here it is.--$150.

  2. Nice condition, fully cased, 1/6th plate image of a Federal Enlistedman.  The interesting thing about this image is that the soldier has an Infantry cross-belt and buckle belt rig but is holding a Model 1860 light Cavalry saber by his side.  The image is nice and clear but is just a touch darker than what would be optimum.--$350.

  3. Fully cased, large 1/4th plate tintype of a standing Federal soldier at attention wearing his 9-button Enlistedman's frock coat and his kepi.  He is wearing a complete leather Federal accoutrement set with US buckle, brass breast plate on the cross-belt, cartridge box, and has his Springfield musket with bayonet in place standing alongside.  There is a Patriotic back-drop in rear of the soldier.  The image has good clarity but is slightly faded  due to light, but remains a very nice armed Federal Infantry image.--$250.

  4. Fully cased, large 1/4th plate tintype of a standing Federal soldier.  He is wearing a 9-button Enlistedman's frock coat, his kepi, and US belt rig with breast plate and buckle both visible.  He has his musket standing at his side.  The image, unfortunately, has been exposed to light and is now quite faded.  There is writing in the back behind the image which may be the soldier's ID, but we cannot make it out.  Here is a bargain on an "ARMED" cased tintype of a Federal Infantry Enlistedman.--$175.

  5. Civil War Era (1864), engraving of General John Sedgwick.  This was published by Johnson Fry & Co. - New York in 1864.  It remains in nice condition and will frame up beautifully.--$45.

  6. Absolutely beautiful condition Civil War Date "From Life" bust view CDV of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.  This image has crisp, sharp edges, and the image is literally as vivid today as during the Civil War.  A quality addition to any collection.--$295.

  7. Very attractive, regulation issue, dark blue, red trimmed, Federal Artillery shell jacket.  This jacket shows clear evidence of actual service and not just a surplus jacket.  The blue and red colors are not faded and remain bright and vivid.  The inspector and maker marks remain clearly visible in the right sleeve.  There are several small moth nips here and there, but nothing beyond what is normal. This jacket was on display for many years in a private museum.  The owners passed away a few years back, and I am selling some of the contents of the museum.--$1,850.

  8. Beautiful condition and quite rare, Confederate manufactured, small leather percussion cap box.  The box has all sewn on belt loops and closure tab.  It also has the small nail holes that were used for construction.  The box is out of a local estate, and I have a fair idea of who likely carried it.  Confederate manufactured cap boxes in this nice condition are rare to come by.--$595.

  9. Original Model 1855, .58 cal., leather cartridge box, slotted for a box plate and with tins inside.  This box came out of the attic of a Civil War Era home in Ohio.  The box remains pliable but is surface flaking some in areas.  It is a good honest, early war, Civil War Federal cartridge box at a very reasonable price.  This is a "McKenney - NY" cartridge box.--$225.

  10. Beautiful condition, regulation issue, Federal cap box with full wool, nipple pick, and original percussion caps still inside.  The inner flap is crisply marked, “R. Nece – D. Laidley – Sub Inspector – US – Ord. Dept.”  This is an excellent little cap box with all the perks you like to see.--$250.

  11. Very nice condition, CONFEDERATE MANUFACTURE, small leather percussion cap box.  The box is all sewn with no brads and has the small nail holes common to Confederate manufactured boxes.  According to the family, this cap box was carried by Andrew Maxfield, Co. D, 25th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry.  The family lives in Overton County, Tennessee.  The box remains in nice, pliable condition with the soldier's initials and partial name on the outside flap of the cap box.  The box still has some original wool inside as well as a number of original percussion caps.  This Confederate cap box will be an excellent addition to someone's Confederate display.--$595.

  12. Nice clear, "from life" CDV of President Abraham Lincoln.  This one is out of a Civil War photo album and has the corners slightly rounded to go in the album.--$65.

  13. Really pretty, fully cased, 1/9th plate, Ruby ambrotype of an armed Union Private.  The soldier is seated with his .69 cal., Model 1842 musket across his chest and is wearing a US belt rig with the cross belt and breast plate visible.  The image has nice clarity, but unfortunately, has a scratch that runs right between his eyes.  The case is a beautiful Patriotic case with a spread-wing Eagle over an American Flag and the motto "Union Forever".  The case is in excellent condition except for one piece of the rim broken out about one inch long.  I have someone that can restore this break perfectly if so desired.--$295.  (This would be a $650 image and case if it were not for the scratch and small piece broken.)

  14. Nice, crisp, clear, 1/6th plate tintype of a young Federal Sergeant seated wearing a 9-button, Enlistedman's frock coat with his Sergeant stripes clearly visible as well as a nice, clear, 20th Corp "5-pointed Star" on his chest.  The image is cased in a beautiful thermoplastic hard case made by "Littlefield Parsons & Co." manufacturers of "Union Cases" and dated 1857.  This is a museum quality little image and case.--$450.

  15. Very pretty condition fully cased 1/6th plate WELL EQUIPTED Federal Infantryman literally ready to head to the front.  This image is out of an Ohio estate and the young man has his "US" waist belt rig complete with US buckle, cartridge box, over the shoulder sling, and cap box, and is "at attention" with his musket with bayonet at his side.  This is very close to being your absolute classic Federal soldier of the Civil War "ready to go".  It is housed in a super nice thermoplastic hard case made by "Littlefield, Parsins, and Co. - UNION CASES - 1857".  This is a "SMOKING NICE" little image.--$450.

  16. 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 image is out of an Ohio estate, and went through a house fire which literally began to melt the case, but the image itself remains in good condition but is a little bit darker than optimum.  This is a nice image, and the soldier is fully equipped, and ready to go to the front.--$195.

  17. Nice clear 1/6th plate tintype of a gentleman out of a North Georgia estate that - according to family lore was a Confederate officer.  He is quite distinguished looking, and comes in a 1/2 patriotic case.  I know the family name, and have a good guess who he likely is.  If you aren't quite ready for the $1,000. Confederate image yet - here is a nice honest Southern image to "fill the spot" until then !!!--$175.SOLD

  18. Very pretty, 1/6th plate tintype of a standing Federal soldier with a Patriotic tent scene in the background.  It is housed in a very ornate black thermoplastic case.  The case is marked, "Littlefield Parsons & Co. Manufacturer of UNION cases, Patented October 14, 1856, and April 21, 1857".  This is a very nice image and in a beautiful case.--$250.

  19. Very pretty condition, fully cased, 1/9th plate glass ambrotype of a seated Federal soldier wearing a 9-button Enlistedman's Federal frock coat.  His kepi is visible on the table beside him.  This image is housed in a beautiful, Patriotic, thermoplastic case with a cannon, a tent, and an American Flag on the outside of the case.  On the rear of the image there is a photographer's card that says, "Halls Gallery of Art - 142nd St. Lawrence".  This is a crisp, clear image in a killer Patriotic case.--$275.

  20. Bust view CDV of an Officer that looks like he could have been related to General Forrest.  It has a "Webster & Bro. Louisville" photographer's mark.  I am not sure if he is US or CS.--$89.

  21. Nice clear Civil War date bust CDV of President Abraham Lincoln.  This image is backmarked, "Henry Barrett - Natik, Mass."--$95.

  22. Quite rare, full length seated CDV of Brevet Brigadier General James Shaw.  General Shaw was commander of the 7th United States Colored Troops as well as several Massachusetts Infantry Regiments.  He joined the regiment November 12, 1863, in Maryland; was post commander at Jacksonville, Florida; commanded brigade in the expedition to Cedar Creek and Camp Melton; participated in the battle on John's Island; was commended for wisdom and bravery in action; returned to Virginia and moved on Richmond; he commanded First Brigade, Third Division, Tenth Army Corps, August 13 to 21, August 25 to September 25, and October 25 to December 4, 1864.

  23. Civil War Era 1/6th plate ambrotype of two young ladies we would guess to be about 4 and 10 years of age.  The older girl is wearing a necklace with gold broach and is holding roses.  The younger girl is holding roses as well, and both are wearing 1850 - 1860 off-shoulder style dresses.  These are almost surely Southern Tennessee girls and are on the verge of witnessing the great Civil War.--$25.

  24. Nice, clear, from life CDV of Ms. Jane B. Mitchell.  The photo as dated 1860 and was taken "for Aunt Ruth".  The photographer was "Y. Day - Memphis, Tennessee".  Ms. Mitchell is wearing a very pretty, off-shoulder cut, full skirt dress.  This photo is dated 1860, so this lady's world was about to change.  This looks like a good "sturdy" woman!!!--$35.

  25. Excellent condition, Civil War CDV of General George McClellan and wife.  The image remains complete and in very nice condition.--$69.

  26. Beautiful condition Civil War era "set" of CDVs of George Washington, and wife - Martha Washington.  Might better get these SOON, before it becomes "UNAMERICAN" to have them.  I understand that Thomas Jefferson is under scrutiny these days !!!--$75. For The Pair

  29. CDV out of a family album from New York.  This young man is of Civil War age, and is IDed as being A. C. Coleman.The image was taken by A. H. Smith of Lima, NY.  Really nice little Civil War era image that can probably be IDed.--$45.

  30. CDV backmarked, "R. Grobe - Photographer, Cor. - Front & State Street - Fremont O."  The image pictures a man and woman with the man seated wearing what appears to be a GAR or UCV medal.  I suspect this photograph was likely taken just after the Civil War during the "Veteran Era".--$38.

  31. Civil War Era CDV of Major General Ambrose E. Burnside.  This is a seated view in full uniform with a rare "Brady - New York" backmark.--$89.

  32. Nice condition, Civil War engraving of the Nations' First Lady, Martha Washington.--$48.

  34. Full standing CDV of Walter Vann of New York.  The CDV is backmarked, "De Long and Robio - Photographic Gallery - Cooperstown, N. Y."  This image came out of an album with several soldier images from the same area.  It is very likely this young fellow was a soldier as well.--$38.

  35. Quite rare CDV of Confederate General Robert E. Lee with a San Francisco, California, backmark.  This image is backmarked, "Wise & Prindle Photographers, No. 417 Montgomery Street - San Francisco".  You just don't see many images coming out of California during this era.--$350.

  36. Group of three Civil War era images from the "Juda Family" of central ILL.  One of the images is a C.D.V. of John Juda, who was a member of Co. "C" - 45 Ill. Inf.  The 45 Ill. was one heck of a unit, and was at Fort Henry - Fort Donelson, Shiloh - Corinth - Port Hudson - Raymond - Champion's Hill - Big Black - Vicksburg - Meridan - Kennesaw - Atlanta - Jonesboro, - and Bentonville.  A nice little grouping for CHEAP !!!--$95. for all

  37. Civil War Era, leather bound CDV photo album.  This album will hold 38 CDV's.  It remains in good, complete condition, but the leather is separating some across the leather back strap.  The interior remains in nice condition, and both brass clasps remain intact.  This would be excellent to hold and display your Civil War CDV's in.--$79.

  38. Nice condition,"from life" bust view of "J. M. Baruard"??  This image was taken by Case & Getchell, Boston, Massachusetts.  Most of the images in the album where this one came were members of the 4th Massachusetts Cavalry.

C, 9th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Cavalry.  It appears this Federal Cavalry unit spent a good deal of time in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.  Later in the war, the 9th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry participated with General Sherman in the "March to the Sea" and was with the Federal Army for the surrender in Greensboro, North Carolina.--$175.

  45. Nice, clear, full-standing pose of Col. Charles Griswold of the 56th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry.  Col.

  49. 1/6th plate tintype of a seated Federal soldier.  He is wearing a 4-button sack coat and a Patriotic scene can be seen behind him.  This image was purchased years ago from a Central Ohio estate sale, so it is very likely that he is an Ohio Volunteer Infantry soldier.  The image remains clear, but is slightly darker than perfect.--$150.

  50. Quite rare bust view CDV image of Confederate General Sterling Price.  General Price served with distinction in numerous Trans-Mississippi Battles.  This image has a crisp "Anthony of New York" backmark.--$275.

  51. Very nice cased pair of Civil War 1/9th plate images.  One image is an ambrotype of a young, Federal Infantry soldier wearing 9-button, Federal Enlistedman's frock coat.  The second image is an older gentleman that we think to likely be his father.  The images were purchased years ago from a Central Ohio estate sale.  Case and both images--$250.

  52. Drop-dead beautiful condition, 1/9th plate, molded thermoplastic image case.  This case has the very ornate outer cover with the Eagle perched atop of the Constitution and surrounded by stars with the American Shield above.  It is dated 1857 and is maker marked, "Littlefield, Parsons, & Co. - Manufacturers of Daguerreotype Cases".  This will be perfect if you have a super nice 1/9th plate image needing a case.--$195.

Peck & Co." improved "Union" case with an intricate military motif.  The image is somewhat dark but you can clearly see the subject.  The case is in very nice condition except does have one piece approximately 1 1/2 inch missing along one edge.  I do have a contact for restoring this break if wanted.  This is both an image and a case that you rarely see.--$395.

  55. Nice clear 1/6th plate fully cased tintype of a Federal soldier wearing his kepi and also his Federal enlistedman's 9-button frock coat.  The image is cased in a Patented "Union" red-brown Thermoplastic case.--$350.

Fully cased, 1/6th plate tintype of a Union Corporal.  He is wearing an enlisted man's blue frock coat with his two Corporal Stripes visible.  This is a seated pose wearing his kepi, and his Smith and Wesson .22 cal. revolver is visible in his vest pocket.  The clear glass outside cover has an old crack across it.  It would be a very simple matter to replace the piece of glass.--$275.

  62. Absolutely beautiful 1/6th plate tintype of two seated Federal soldiers, both wearing Infantry frock coats and regulation blue trousers.  One of the men has his kepi resting in his lap.  This image remains crystal clear and is housed in an extremely ornate patriotic black gutta percha case.  The case has an Eagle in the center with wings outspread by an American Flag and also a shield and a cannon with cannon balls.  This style patriotic case is very rare to find.--$395.

  67. Tiny folding silver "book" that has two gem size images inside.  I believe both images to be of Civil War Generals, and although they have a familiar look, I cannot place their name.  A little help would sure be appreciated.  The small case itself appears to be solid silver.--$195.

  78. 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.

  79. 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

  84. 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.
