Civilian Ambrotype with Militia Eagle Belt Plate


Item No. CL27543 Category


Sixth plate prewar ambrotype. Perhaps a newly minted soldier who has not yet received his uniform, or possibly photographed with his father’s militia belt plate. Maybe he just needed a belt. Regardless he sports a C.1850 two-piece militia eagle waist belt. The face of that belt plate is crystal clear! Some solarization to the plate itself. Comes with a full leatherette case but the spine is split.
