For your consideration is this rare identified Civil war tintype photograph identified as James H. Looking over the civil war database, I found a James H Moore who was from Nashua NH and enlisted on 8/12/1862 as a Musician. He mustered into E Company of the 9th NH Infantry and mustered out on 6/10/1865. He was only 14 when enlisting so this must have been taken near the end of the war. Great 1/4 plate tintype in an EX thermoplastic case. Nice view of his sword, belt plate and drum to his side. The photograph is in fair condition due to bends and corrosion that is on the right side. Shows pretty well but when tilted in light you can see the bending. Overall a really great piece and would make a splendid addition to your collection. I will have an incredible selection of early militaria and rare items up for sale, so don’t miss out on these items! International will be sent via First Class Internrfational.

Believed Unpublished Civil War Tintype of Confederate General Sterling Price

Offered here is a sixth plate tintype photograph featuring the image of Confederate General Sterling Price , handsomely dressed with his sword by his side, leaning gently against a Greek-style pedestal. Eagle belt buckle, buttons, and epaulettes are all hand-tinted gold. I believe this to be an unpublished and, perhaps, one-of-a-kind image of the Missouri general. While the image appears to be a period copy of an original plate rather than a “from life” portrait, I was unable to find another photograph of Price in this particular pose, leading me to suspect that the original may have been destroyed or otherwise lost to history. In the Missouri History Museum’s archives I did find a CDV of Price from a different perspective (see third photo above, though please note it is not included with this listing), dressed in a strikingly similar uniform, with similar hair and facial expression. Even the way the cloth of his uniform folds around the center series of buttons is nearly identical. It is likely that these images were taken in the same sitting, or at least at nearly the same time. The image measures about 2 1/2″ x 3″. Some deterioration to the image as shown. This is a loose tintype and does not include a case. All reasonable offers considered. If you know anything about this image, I’d be interested in hearing from you.

EARLY 1860s BASEBALL CIVIL WAR CARTE DE VISITE CDV

EARLY 1860s BASEBALL CIVIL WAR CARTE DE VISITE CDV

EARLY 1860s BASEBALL CIVIL WAR CARTE DE VISITE CDV

Based upon the mount, photographer, content, and lack of a revenue stamp, I would date this cdv as pre September 1, 1864, which is when revenue stamps were first required to be attached to cdvs. This a wonderful image that marries baseball and the Civil War. The image pictures nine soldiers/cadets in an outdoor pose. A bat is clearly visible in the foreground and the soldier in the upper left is holding a baseball. Finding any baseball related photograph this early is next to impossible to do. After 1865 and the end of the Civil War, baseball related cdvs became more plentiful. Although still very difficult to find, they were available. Good luck finding another baseball cdv pre-1865 that doesn’t cost a large dollar amount. Please feel free to ask any questions.

This item is in the category “Collectibles\Militaria\Civil War (1861-65)\Original Period Items\Photographs”. The seller is “grp75″ and is located in Mount Morris, New York.
