rare, young Mexican War Era, General Robert E.
Lee. This is a nice, crisp image with a
"Charles D. Fredericks & Co. - New York"
fully cased, 1/4 plate tintype of a young
Federal Infantryman wearing a 4-button sack
coat and US belt and buckle rig. The
image has a patriotic backdrop with a red,
white, and blue tinted American flag flying.
The original case remains in nice
rare, "Brady" CDV of Confederate General John
B. Floyd. General Floyd had very little
military experience and is credited for
dumping the command at Ft. Donelson on General
Buckner for surrender. This is a
Confederate CDV that you do not often see
offered for sale.--$150.
clear, fully cased, young Federal Private seated
wearing his frock coat, vest, and kepi.
This young man has the look of your typical
Federal Private in the American Civil
rare display including the "Maid of Honor"
ribbon for the 1924 UCV Reunion in Memphis,
Tennessee, for the Eastern Division of the
United Confederate Veterans. This ribbon
was purchased out of the Bradley/Forrest
estate in Memphis, Tennessee, around 1970, and
with the ribbon is an ambrotype of a Civil War
Era lady holding what appears to be a Bible.
This display is going to be an exciting
research project for someone. We believe
this young lady could possibly be Marguerite
Toutant Beauregard of New Orleans, Louisiana,
who was the Chief Maid of Honor at this
reunion. Who is up for this research
plate, fully cased tintype of a young, Federal
Private. This is a bust view, and he is
wearing a 9-button Enlistedman's frock coat.
The image has good clarity and is not flaking at
beautiful 1/9th plate EAGLE PATRIOTIC hard
rubber case complete with patriotic matting
and glass intact. If you have a killer
image worthy of a SWEET case - Here it is
out of a Pennsylvania estate sale, crisp,
clear CDV of a Federal Lieutenant in a Civil
War Era, die stamped, black paper lacquered
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
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.
rare "From Life" CDV of Confederate Brigadier
General Humphrey Marshall. General
Marshall was from Kentucky and was very active
during the Civil War Era, both militarily and
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
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.
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.
scarce "From Life" C.D.V. of Confederate
General John C. Breckinridge. General
Breckinridge was a past Vice President of
the United States from the State of
Kentucky. During the Civil War,
General Breckinridge was assigned to the
Army of Tennessee under Confederate General
Braxton Bragg. General Bragg accused
General Breckinridge of being in a drunken
state at the Battles of Stones River and
Missionary Ridge and thereby contributing to
Confederate defeats at these sites.

with Lieutenant shoulder straps, a Model
1851 cast brass Eagle sword belt rig, and
his maroon officer's sash is visible at his

Light Cavalry saber cradled in his arm.
This is a quite large 1/4 plate image in a
1/2 hard case. There are a couple
small scuff marks on the image, but it is in
overall good condition. It is really
hard to find a big 1/4 plate armed Cavalry
condition original "Carbon Studio" albumin
of Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard.
The image measures 4" by 6" and was
published by "M. Miley and Son - Lexington,
VA (Michael Miley)." It remains in

beautiful 1/9th plate gutta percha "S.

plate image - Here is a case worthy of

BIG DOLLAR image. It is a 1/9th plate
tintype of a Federal BUGLER with his Bugle
in his hand. He is wearing a 9-button
Federal enlistedman's frock coat, and is
holding his bugle in his hand. You can
easily see the bugle, but the image is,
unfortunately, quite dark. Great
content, but because it is so dark - priced
to virtually give away.--$195.

for a 1/6th plate tintype or ambrotype.

and tough to come by 1973 print of General Nathan Bedford Forrest that
was done by the Sons of Confederate Veterans over 30 years ago.
The print is BIG measuring 24 inches by 30 inches before framing and is
absolutely breathtaking once it's matted and framed. I seldom get
these in anymore.--$89.
