The mat is intricately detailed with Union flags, sabres, canons, and reads: “Constitution and Union” as well as “July 4″ on the bottom. The mat is also marked Scovill MFG Co. Second, the photo comes in a beautiful thermoplastic union case that has a lavish geometric pattern on one side, and the other shows the Union Camp Scene Motif. The interior of the case has the original advertising insert: Littlefield, Parsons & Co. Manufacturers of Daguerreotype Cases……… Patented October 14, 1856, and April 21, 1857. This antique Tintype is in good condition for its age, showing some light scuffing and some loss to the photo near the bottom & top right of the tintype.
