A very nice 1/4 plate (3 1/4" x 4 1/4") horizontal tintype of a mother and son, the latter of which wears the standard infantry frock coat of the Union army. The forage cap atop his head has brass insignia, but they cannot be identified due to the angle. The image is in excellent condition, having just some very light crazing.
Comes housed in a half leather case. Please see my other items for more interesting and original Civil War pieces.
