Early war, sixth plate tintype of a triple armed New York infantryman. Dressed in his state issue, New York chasseur jacket. You can see those large, domed New York buttons running down the face of the jacket. He’s sporting a pair of brass shoulder scales which by about 1862, most infantryman had done away with as they really served no purpose other than being awkward and annoying. A handkerchief can be seen sticking out of his breast pocket and his watch chain has been run through a button hole for the watch tucked into the pocket as well. Nice, clear US waist belt is worn with his cap box and his empty bayonet scabbard with the bayonet shown in place on the musket. He is also armed with a Smith & Wesson Model 1 revolver which he has tucked into his belt along with a small, silver handled Sheffield knife. Housed in a full leatherette case with a split spine.
