Pretty sweet little sixth plate tintype of this Yank wetting his whistle. Seated pose as he holds up his glass with one hand and prepares to pour a drink from his M1855 smooth side canteen. You can see that the canteen is missing the wool cover and he has knotted up the linen sling to shorten up the length as a good many soldiers did. A large signet ring is seen on the pinky finger of the hand holding the glass. The pant leg of his trouser is all bunch up on top of his boot with the pulling strap for the boot visible. Really sweet content. Housed in a half leatherette case.
