Item #45411 Beautiful quarter plate ruby ambrotype of a Federal cavalryman. Studio seated pose dressed in his cavalry service jacket. His M1851 hat rests on the table beside him with brass cavalry insignia pinned to the front along with the numeral "5" and his company letter "B". A revolver is tucked into his eagle waist belt while he grips his heavy cavalry saber. Beautiful tinting to this one with hues of blue, pink and red.

Item #89876 Really neat quarter plate tintype of a Federal officer photographed with two women. Dressed in his infantry frock and wearing the rank of 2nd lieutenant. He sits next to this young woman who I presume is his wife sharing an embrace with his arm around her shoulder and holding her hand. A second woman who looks to possibly be the sister of this young officer sits to his opposite side. Taken during the winter months, the two woman are bundled up against the cold with multiple layers and furs. This one is slightly trimmed along the right and left side but you are unable to notice with the mat on the image. Housed in a full thermoplastic case. $650.00 

Item #88870 Quarter plate tintype of a Federal infantryman dressed in his newly issued frock. He has most likely not received all his equipage as of yet and merely posed rather proudly in his new coat. He stands with his arm resting on this beautiful Victorian carved chair with the back design made up of grape vines and grapes. It comes housed in a mint full thermoplastic case. $250.00

Item #23315 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. $650.00

Item #12200 Beautiful little ninth plate ruby ambrotype. Striking a rigid pose, this young soldier stands dressed in his great coat. Unique to this coat is the scalloped trim located on the cuffs. Visible below the skirt of the coat are his striped NCO trousers. Displaying his cap in hand, he wears a full compliment of US accouterments consisting of a waist belt, cap box and cartridge box. An empty bayonet scabbard hangs from the belt as well. A side knife can be seen housed in the sheath and tucked into his belt. Wonderful light blue tinting to the great coat, trousers and cap. Housed in a half leatherette case. Super nice looking image. $400.00

Item #78876 Mexican War period daguerreotype of this freckled faced young soldier. He is shown casually wearing his frock completely unbuttoned and open. The frock itself is worn over a brilliant white undershirt, vest and black silk cravat. His cap can been see resting in his lap. It has been professionally re-taped. This plate does exhibit some condition issues as can be seen here. However the plate in hand looks much cleaner. Housed in a half leatherette case. $600.00 SALE PENDING!

Item #54542 Outstanding and exceptionally rare sixth plate daguerreotype of West Point cadet and future United States officer and Confederate brigadier general, Laurence Simmons Baker. A North Carolina native, Baker would initially receive his schooling at the Norfolk Academy before being accepted to West Point. He would graduate from the academy in 1851, last in his class of 42 cadets. Following his graduation from the academy he would be given a commission serving as a 2nd lieutenant in the 3rd U.S. Cavalry (Mounted Rifles). Baker would eventually rise to the rank of captain, serving mainly on the frontier. As hostilities broke out between the North and the South, Baker would align with his home state of North Carolina despite his opposition to succession, resigning on May 10th. Before the ink on his resignation had even dried, Baker would be appointed lieutenant colonel of the 1st North Carolina Cavalry. With Robert Ransom serving as colonel and James B. Gordon serving as major, they would form one of the finest cavalry regiments in Confederate service. In the spring of 1862, following Ransom's transfer to an infantry unit, Baker would be promoted to colonel of the regiment. The regiment would serve admirably under his guidance. First in assisting with stemming the advance of Burnside's forces in North Carolina and then again helping Lee push back McClellan's forces in front of Richmond. Baker would see further action throughout 1862 at the Seven Day's Battle, Second Manassas, South Mountain, Sharpsburg, Williamsport, Fredericksburg and lastly Chancellorsville. The following year would see the regiment hotly engaged at Brandy Station where they received great praise for their action on the field. At Upperville, Baker himself would lead his men in the charge yelling "First North Carolina, Follow me!" as he repulsed the Union cavalrymen.

 During the Gettysburg Campaign, Baker and the men of the 1st North Carolina would accompany Stuart on his raid around the Union Army. In the cavalry action of July 3rd, Baker would assume command of the brigade after the wounding of General Hampton. As the Army of Northern Virginia retreated back towards Virginia, Baker was given the task of covering the retreat. As Union cavalry advanced on Brandy Station, Baker and his men would put up stiff resistance. General Stuart, Baker's superior would report to General Lee with great praise for Baker and his actions at Brandy Station. Lee would recommend Baker for a promotion that same day, giving him the rank of brigadier general. He would be assigned to take command of an exclusive force of North Carolina cavalry consisting of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th North Carolina Cavalry. Baker had however been severely wounded in the right arm during the fight at Brandy Station. Unfit for field command he would yield command to James Gordon.

Still incapacitated by his arm wound, he was assigned to command the Second North Carolina Military District headquartered in Goldsboro beginning in June, 1864. In this new en-devour he was tasked with protecting the Weldon Railroad, a major lifeline for the Confederacy, from roaming Union forces. In doing so he was wounded again on September 22nd. Baker would return to command in time to see action in front of Sherman's Army near Savannah before being recalled back to North Carolina to take command of the First Brigade of North Carolina Junior Reserves. A brigade made up entirely of boys under the age of 18. In March 1865, Baker would make a last desperate effort to stop Sherman's advance into North Carolina during the Battle of Bentonville. After learning of Lee's surrender at Appomattox and Johnston's surrender on April 26th, Baker surrendered his command. He would be paroled on May 8th at Raleigh and return to civilian life.

This exceptionally rare view shows Laurence during his time at West Point. The aspiring officer would have been close to 19 years of age at the time of this sitting. Photographed in his undress uniform with a row of cadet eagle buttons running down the front. A stiff white, paper neck stock is worn along with a cravat. Photographed by New York photographer J. E. Carpenter. Carpenter would open for business in 1850 and by the end of 1851 he had closed up shop. The same year which Baker would graduate from West Point. Accompanying this image is Baker's signed West Point manual "Summary of the Course of Permanent Fortifications". Signed in period ink inside the front cover "Lt. Lau S. Baker U.S.A.", dating it's field use to his time serving as a lieutenant with the 3rd U.S. Cavalry. The book itself is missing the spine but both the front and back cover are present as are all pages. The daguerreotype itself has been heavily researched and studied by renowned facial identification specialist, Herbert Buckley of New York who specializes in physiognomical facial nomenclature. This is the same facial identification process used by the FBI and other similar organizations to identify subjects by recognizing corresponding facial features and facial structures. The image is accompanied by significant documentation from Mr. Buckley in which he compared the image with other known views of Baker, concluding with absolute certainty the identification. The dag itself has been professionally re-sealed with demonstrates a slight amount of oxidation around the mat edge. Otherwise a beautiful image absent of blemishes. It does come housed in the original and full leatherette case as well. Extremely rare view of one of the Confederacy's leading and highly respected  cavalry officers! $8500.00  

Item #10011 Wonderful sixth plate tintype of a Federal officer posed with his three young children. He appears to be a lieutenant dressed in a military frock and sporting a Hardee hat. Brass infantry insignia is pinned to the front of the cap along with his regiment. The numbers are however to blurred to decipher. His youngest son rests on his knee and leaning back against his shoulder. A parade flag hangs loose in the young boys hand with another object held in his opposite hand. Looks like a small toy pistol perhaps. Flanked by his daughter, she stands with arm resting on the high chair and presenting a strong look to the camera. The middle child, another son, sits in a high chair and holding a toy sword in his lap. Superb image of this father posed with his children as he heads off to war. Housed in a full leatherette case. $800.00 SALE PENDING

Item #89902 Sweet little ninth plate ambrotype of this rebel soldier. Dressed in a dark grey jean cloth frock and matching trousers. The collar and cuffs are trimmed with very simple red cord. A McDowell pattern cap is also worn with brass insignia pinned to the top. More than likely a heavy artilleryman from one of the countless batteries that surrounded Richmond. The photographer is unknown but we do known that he operated somewhere in the Shenandoah Valley. Possibly in either Staunton or Rockbridge or even Richmond itself. I've had a number of images of Confederate heavy artilleryman photographed in this studio. Beautiful, clear view. Unfortunately all the buttons have been heavy gilded. Beautiful view. Housed in a full leatherette case. $695.00 SALE PENDING!

Item #89887 Rare ninth plate ruby ambrotype of a member of the 2nd New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry. This uniform is almost always incorrectly identified as Confederate. The uniform itself consisted of a grey swallow-tail coat trimmed in red with six large state buttons running down the front. The trousers were made of the same matching gray material. The cap was gray as well with a band of red around the lower portion and "2 NH" pinned to the crown although it isn't visible here. The majority of men from this unit that I have seen have all been photographed in the same studio. Presumably taken before they left the state. They would be mustered into service in June, 1861 and see their first action at Bull Run. The regiment would go on to fight at Fair Oaks, Malvern Hill, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg and several others. They would suffer their largest loss at Gettysburg with 47 men killed, 136 wounded and another 36 men that went missing. Of 24 officers only 3 would go unscathed. This young soldier stands with his musket at his side and a Colt Navy displayed across his midsection. His company letter "H" is pinned to the front of his cap. Unlike the majority of regiments that began the war in state issue uniforms, the 2nd New Hampshire refused to change to Federal blue uniforms and continued to wear their grey uniforms for the duration of their 3 years of service. Photographic examples of this uniform are quite rare and generally misidentified. Nice, clear image housed in a full patriotic thermoplastic case. $1100.00 SALE PENDING!

Item #89976 Sixth plate tintype of a yank infantryman ready to march. Posed is a make shift studio where he stands on a muddy, wood plank floor with a canvas sheet drawn up behind him. He stands rigid supporting the wight of his knapsack. Dressed in his infantry frock with full US accouterments. His knapsack is strapped over his shoulders with his great coat rolled up in his gum blanket and fasted to the top. His musket is held at his side with the bayonet attached. Nice looking image. Housed in a full leatherette case with the nice, brilliant blue velvet pad. $795.00
Item #17765 Rare sixth plate melainotype of a seldom seen color sergeant. I think I have had maybe two images of color sergeants over the years. Seated pose dressed in his infantry frock with sergeants stripes worn on the sleeve and crossed US flags indicating his rank as color sergeant. Tentatively identified as James M. Arnold of the 12th Kansas Infantry. The carte view which is not included in this sale shows a view of James posed with the regimental flag. The sixth plate itself was found in Beloit, Kansas not far from where the 12th Kansas was raised. James would muster with Company I in September, 1862. Unlike many color sergeants that served during the war, James would manage to survive. The regiment would serve along the Kansas/Missouri border for the first year before being stationed at Fort Smith. The men would be mustered out of service in June, 1865. Great view of this seldom seen rank. Housed in a half case. $1000.00

Item #46641 Quarter plate ambrotype of two pre-war militia soldiers. I would presume possibly a father serving as an officer photographed with his young enlisted son. The officer sits dressed in a dark blue frock and wearing gold bullion fringed epaulets. His kepi is worn with a lower band of red and yellow and decorated with a large ostrich plume. It looks to be the numeral "7" pinned to the front of his cap also. His younger under study sits dressed in this unusual jacket with cloth shoulder tabs. A white buff cross belt and waist belt are also worn. He wears a similar cap minus the plume and numeral. Both cradle a sword in their lap as well. This one does have a crack through it as you can see but it has been taped and is very stable. Some emulsion missing in the lower left hand corner as well. Housed in a very nice full thermoplastic case. $500.00

Item #75654 Quarter plate tintype of a newly recruited Federal cavalryman. Seated pose of this handsome horse soldier. He sits dressed in a brand new cavalry service jacket. So new it still has the wrinkles in it from the packaging crate. He still wears a pair of civilian trousers as he apparently hasn't yet received his heavy cavalry trousers. Beautiful, clear view. This one is trimmed down horizontally along the right and left side of the plate so that the mat just covers the edge. Still a wonderful image. It comes housed in a very nice full thermoplastic case as well. $350.00

Item #11252 Beautiful quarter plate ruby ambrotype of this Federal lieutenant. Absolute stunning clarity to this image. This young officer sits dressed in his frock wearing the rank of 2nd lieutenant. A McDowell pattern cap is worn with an embroidered infantry horn worn on the front with his regimental designation. The numbers are slightly blurred but it looks like perhaps the number "29". He sits cradling this magnificent officers sword and wearing a M1851 eagle waist belt plate over his sash. The clarity of this image is just superb. Ruby ambrotypes are by far my favorite format simply for that reason. Unfortunately this officer is yet to be identified. Housed in a half leatherette case. $750.00


Item #49494 Double cased pair of husband and wife ninth plate images. Superb ninth plate ruby ambrotype of this young lady in a blue dress which has been wonderfully tinted. Crystal clear image with beautiful blue eyes. The second view is a ninth plate tintype of this cavalry sergeant. Heavily tinted cavalry chevrons on the sleeve and sporting a small multi-colored neck tie. These comes housed in a very nice double sided patriotic thermoplastic case. $395.00

Item #48766 Sixth plate tintype of this hard drinking yank cavalryman. He already looks like he's 3 sheets to the wind. Seated pose wearing two jackets and a pair of re-enforced cavalry trousers. A large handkerchief is tucked into the fold of one jacket with a pocket watch chain and key hanging from the pocket. On the table beside him stands a bottle of booze and a tin cup. This does have an old clipped id to a lieutenant with the 134th New York Infantry with it but I don't believe it is correct as this fellow is wearing a cavalry jacket. I will however include it with the image. This one comes housed in a beat up half thermoplastic case. The emulsion on this one is unfortunately suffering from flaking in a couple locations as you can see. $195.00

Item #28191 Drop dead beautiful sixth plate ruby ambrotype. One of the most beautiful ambro's I have ever seen. The coloring on this image is just spectacular. Seated pose of this yank infantryman dressed in his greatcoat and cape. Superb blue tinting to the coat and his trousers. A red scarf is worn around the neck with the coat worn over the top of it. His cap rests on a table beside him with this stunning green and pink floral pattern table cloth. Even his hands have been tinted to make them more life like. Just an absolute work of art! Housed in a full leatherette case with a repaired spine. $850.00

Item #48123 Outstanding sixth plate tintype of this unidentified Federal infantry captain. Crystal clear image of this very distinguished officer. Seated pose with his hand tucked into the fold of his frock. His gloved hand rests on the pommel of sword. That eagle waist plate couldn't be any more clear! A fine pair of Smith's patent shoulder straps are worn with the rank of captain clearly seen. Unfortunately I have thus far been unable to identify this subject with absolute certainly. Just a magnificent view of this officer. Housed in a full leatherette case with a split spine. $750.00

Item #79867 Ninth plate tintype dressed in this unusual jacket. It's not a frock and it's not your typical service jacket. Similar to a Schuylkill Arsenal infantry jacket but the buttons are not correct. It also lacks any trim although the photographer has taken the liberty to add cavalry cuff trim and sergeants stripes. Unfortunately the buttons are gilded over obscuring any state identity. This one comes housed in a very nice patriotic thermoplastic case and patriotic mat. $350.00

Item #55400 This is a neat pair of ninth plate tintypes of two unidentified Connecticut troops. Both images were taken in the same studio and appear to be outfitted with the same studio props. Both men are dressed in a dark grey uniform consisting of a 5 button sack coat with a large breast pocket and matching grey trousers. They also wear identical grey slouch caps. Connecticut troops were issued a number of odd accouterments. One of which was this heavy, woven cartridge box sling which is worn by both men. They also sport a US "baby" waist belt. Both armed with the identical pistol as well. Now whether or not the accouterment set was provided by the photographer or not is anybody's guess but the pistol most certainly was. Neat pair of images. These two come housed in a very nice double sided thermoplastic case. $600.00

Item #54987 Sharp looking sixth plate ambrotype of an early state volunteer. Not sure where this fellow is from. Mid western state most likely. Dressed in a dark blue, 8 button service jacket with cloth shoulders tabs and belt loops. He wears corporal stripes on the sleeve but you can clearly see they used to be sergeant stripes and the top chevron on each sleeve has been removed. Busted down in rank no doubt. The buttons along the front of the jacket are Federal eagle buttons. A nice and clear M1851 eagle waist belt is worn along with his sash. You can just see the scabbard for the sword that he holds jutting up from his hip. A very beat up cap is worn with infantry insignia and his company letter "F" pinned to the front. Sharp looking image. This one comes housed in a full patriotic thermoplastic case. $600.00

Item #33600 Sweet little ninth plate oval tintype of this dashing yank cavalryman. Nice up close view of this horse soldier dressed in his cavalry jacket. He sports this fantastic black felt slouch cap with a wonderful and large ostrich plume worn directly in the front of the cap. Wonderful example of what one would imagine when picturing a dashing cavalryman. This one comes housed in a full thermoplastic case but it does have a small piece missing out of the case right where the latch is. Wonderful image! $350.00

Item #27888 Sixth plate tintype of a unidentified member of the 1st or 2nd Rhode Island Infantry. This fellow however was most likely from the 2nd Rhode Island which recently became famous after the Ken Burns documentary and Elisha Hunt Rhodes. This Rhode Islander would serve with Company D which is pinned to the front of his cap. He is dressed in the classic Rhode Island blouse issued to members of the 1st and 2nd Rhode Island along with the dark blue chasseur kepi. A small shield badge is pinned to the front of his blouse and a ribbon hangs from his pocket with a pocket watch key seen swinging at the end. His pocket watch resting in his pocket out of site. A US waist belt is worn with a holster pistol worn on the belt. It looks to be a .32 cal. Merwin & Bay single shot derringer. Nice looking image from a hard to find state and historic regiment. This one comes housed in a full leatherette case. $465.00

Item #68342 Double cased sixth plate ambrotypes of a sergeant major and his wife. This NCO stands dressed in a rather unique frock. It appears to have 5 very large domed buttons running down the front, with cloth shoulder tabs and a slash pocket located on the breast. Nice, large sergeant majors chevrons are worn on the sleeve. A holstered revolver is worn front and center while his sword rests on his hip. His wife sits dressed in this wonderful and immense silk hoop skirt. I can't imagine how cumbersome and stifling a gown of that size must have been. She is draped in gold jewelry and her hair I can only assume took hours to be braided in such an unbelievable manner. How she managed to keep all of those small and perfect loops in her hair is beyond me! Unfortunately the pair is not identified. Wonderful pair of images with a rank you don't see to often. Housed in a quite nice double sided thermoplastic case. $650.00 

Item #33421 Wonderful little ninth plate tintype. I love the look of this image and the expression on his face. Dressed in this grey homespun wool-jean cloth jacket. Nice clarity to the image so that you can visibly see the weave of the jean cloth material. He was this fantastic row of "Goodyear Patent" hard-rubber buttons which run down the front of the jacket and really stand out. He wears this rather mischievous grin on his face while sporting this absolutely fantastic dark grey slouch cap. Just a great looking image. This one does have a tax stamp on the reverse but it is not dated. He may in fact be a recently paroled Confederate prisoner of war. This one comes housed in a full leatherette case with a split spine. This one does come with a 4 x 6 copy of General Orders No. 109 issued June 6, 1865 regarding the discharge of Confederate Prisoners of War. Great looking image! $350.00

Item #23443 Set of two tintype images of what appear to be mother, father and son based on the facial features of this young man and the two shown above. The first image is a quarter plate tintype of an aging husband and wife. He stands dressed in a nine button light gray military vest and grey civilian trousers. A single breasted dark wool coat is also worn with a small amount of cuff trim visible. His wife sits dressed in a black dress with white lace collar and a small brooch or cockade pinned to the front. What's really neat is it appears she must have been attending to some household sewing as she has at least 4 sewing needles stuck in the front pleats of her dress which you can clearly see. The second view is a ninth plate tintype showing a steely eyed soldier dressed in a double breasted Confederate jean-cloth frock coat with an external breast pocket. The face of the buttons are not visible but are of the rimmed, convex military type. A civilian vest is worn with a checkered pattern along with a dark button up shirt and paper collar. A thick multi colored cord hangs from his neck which most likely leads to a pocket watch. Unfortunately the subjects are not identified but they came out of Martinsville, Virginia. Neither of these have cases either. Just the brass mats, preservers and cover glass. $450.00

Item #28909 Quarter plate melainotype of three early war Confederate enlistee's. It would appear to be 3 brothers enlisting for the cause or perhaps one last photo before sending a brother off to war. The trio are shown in this view with hands embraced. It has been suggested that the man standing at center is the same man shown in the second image which is now housed in the LOC. The man seated at left is dressed in grey trousers which sport a black stripe down the trouser seam. He also wears a dark, double breasted coat with two rows of buttons featuring a flower pattern. Certainly not unusual for Confederate troops as I have seen flower buttons used on many occasions. The other two men are dressed in their Sunday best. Apparently this studio must have been quite small as there wasn't even enough room to move the extra chair out of the view of the camera lens. Beautifully clear image. This one comes housed in a half leatherette case. $850.00

Item #68744 Wonderful ninth plate tintype of this steely eyed old character. This one came out of Bertrand, Missouri. This old fellow has seen some miles which one can see on his weathered face and aging grey beard. Piercing blue eyes coldly stare into the camera. It would probably be a good bet this fellow took part in the Kansas/Missouri border wars and may have been in fact a guerrilla or Missouri State Guard. Most likely taken during the winter months, he sits dressed in multiple layers with the outer laying being this heavy frock with Goodyear type buttons. Under the overcoat is worn a grey wool-jean military type jacket with a stand-up collar. Clear enough that you can see the cassimere weave of the military jacket worn. Typical wear to the coat which you would expect to see where an accouterment sling would have been worn. He also sports this wonderful 1860's black slouch hat with a small tassel drooped over the brim. This old fellow does not look like somebody who's bad side you would like to be on. Housed in a  half leatherette case. $275.00 

Item #25432 Double cased sixth plate tintypes. Both photos are of the same soldier taken during the same sitting. They are not identical images. You can see that he has his hand slid up slightly farther on the stock and closer to the barrel band in the second image. Looks to be a mid-western yank dressed in a state issue uniform. Illinois I would suspect. Outfitted with full accouterments and holding his musket across his chest. Housed in a double sided thermoplastic case. $550.00

Item #79856 Ninth plate ambrotype of a Federal cavalryman. Nice up close view of this horse soldier dressed in his cavalry shell jacket. He wears a patriotic silk sash over the shoulder which has been tinted in wonderful shades of red, white and blue. The former owner had the sash that he is wearing in this view as well but it was in such a deteriorated state that they threw it away!! At least the image has survived. This one comes in a full thermoplastic case with patriotic matting. $395.00


Item #78700 Grouping attributed to Henry Clay Jones of the 2nd Vermont Infantry, Co. D. Henry would serve with the regiment beginning in June, 1861 and serve until his discharge in June of 1864. He would be wounded once while engaged at the Wilderness. The grouping consists of a post war photograph of Henry dressed in his GAR uniform accompanied by two very nice GAR badges. The family CDV album in pristine condition holding 30 views including one of Henry in civilian dress. Many of them identified. His original appointment to 3rd sergeant dated August, 1862 and signed by the regiment's major who would later be killed at the Wilderness. Also included in his certificate from the state of Vermont acknowledging his service. His original acceptence letter from the Bureau of Pensions granting his pension still in the original envelope. Henry's personal portfolio of Military and Civil War History which records his service in detail. A family history book which records the family history from 1750 through 1898 and an envelope full of misc documents relating to Henry's estate. Very nice grouping of a Vermont veteran. $450.00 

Item #12912 Quarter plate tintype of two late war yanks that came out of New Market, Maryland many years ago. Very casual pose of these two men. One of the men stands with his frock unbuttoned and resting his hand on the other's shoulder. The other is seated sporting camp shoes and service stripes located on the coat sleeves. Mint view which this scan does not do justice. Housed in a full leatherette case with a split spine. $500.00

Item #87121 Rare ninth plate ambrotype of an unidentified member of the 2nd New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry. These guys are pretty much misidentified in every single publication I am aware of as being Confederate. He is dressed in the New Hampshire grey greatcoat and cape. The uniform underneath would have also been grey and trimmed in red. The only part of that uniform that is visible here is the grey cap which has a lower band of red that ran around the base of the cap. Company letter "F" is pinned to the front. He stands armed with his musket and brandishing an Allen & Wheelock 32 cal. pocket revolver from under the flap of his cape. Images from this unit are actually very hard to find. These guys fought from the First Battle of Bull Run all the way to Richmond. At Gettysburg they were nearly annihilated. Very hard to find image. Housed in a half case. $850.00
