This is an original Ambrotype image of a Union soldier from the Civil War. This one is a seated waist up image of a Union infantryman in full uniform. He proudly wears his sack style enlistedman's military coat. On his head he wears the forage style military hat. In front of him he proudly holds the Austrian military musket with the bayonet affixed to the end. The musket is the classic model which was imported and so often used by the regular fighting men of the Civil War. He has the cartridge box sling visible with the box itself hanging by his side. What makes this one special is the buckle that is around his waist. You can vividly see the "OVM" buckle that stands for the Ohio Volunteer Militia. This is one of the early images of a soldier from the Buckeye state. I have had a few of these over the years but this one is by far the clearest I have ever had the chance to offer. Neatly tucked behind his belt he has a small fighting knife and you can see the handle. He is seated in front of a field style plain backdrop that lets us know it was likely taken by a traveling photographer in the field. This one is the size known to collectors as the sixth plate image. It measures about 2.75 inches by 3.25 inches in overall size. The image is still housed in the original leatherette case. This is a nice clear image of a soldier with a desirable weapon and the buckle from Ohio. IT will look spectacular displayed beside your OVM belt Buckle.
