Carte view of a Federal soldier striking a very casual pose. He sits slumped in the chair with his arm resting on the table beside him. Dressed in a sack coat which he wears completely open exposing his vest and this superb watch fob chain. Made from a number of small coins which he has strung together with a small metal fish featured at the top. Obviously something he was quite proud of. This view came out of an album attributed to the Buchan family in which were a number of carte views back marked out of Illinois, Iowa and Ohio. His exact id is unfortunately unknown. Back marked out of Davenport, Iowa.
