6th Plate Tintype of a Union Cavalryman with his Foot Officer's Sword
Click on an image to enlarge

This is a great looking 6th plate tintype image of a Civil War Union cavalryman in his officer's style frock coat. These tintype images were produced on a thin sheet of tin, hence the name. This is the size that is known to collectors as the sixth plate size. It measures about 2.75 inches by 3.25 inches in overall size. This image is vividly clear. The image shows the seated knee up view of the soldier. He is wearing his frock style military coat with the officer shoulder straps on his shoulders. The light color lets us know that he was in the cavalry branch of service. Since there is no ornamentation inside the strap he held the rank of Lieutenant. He holds his hand on his model 1850 foot officer sword. The handle of the sword is visibly clear as you can see. Around his waist he wears the 2-piece tongue and wreath design sword belt buckle. The brass matt has the beautiful patriotic designs. As you can see the image is darker but still clear. One thing that is neat about this image is what is written in the inside of the half case that is remaining. It reads "J.B. Woodsworth presented this duplicate of himself to Addie L. Cass. December 6th 1863. May I ever cherish it as fondly as now. With God's blessing, I will ever so strive to be worthy of his love and friendship." I was unable to find that name but maybe you will have better luck. This is a great looking tintype image of an armed cavalry soldier.
