This is a wonderful ninth plate tintype in the oval format. Shown is this dashing young Federal cavalryman dressed in his newly issued cavalry service jacket. To be a dashing cavalryman one most possess the proper hear gear and this guy knocked it out of the park. Sporting this wonderful black felt slouch cap with a huge ostrich plume rising from the front of the hat. Doubt that stayed on his head for very long when he took off at a full gallop but it sure looks pretty when your sashaying around camp. Really nice tinting to this one as well. A camp scene back drop is shown over his shoulder. Housed in a full thermoplastic case with a few chips out of it.
