  1. Nice clear SIGNED CDV of LT. Henry H. Klock of the 9th ILL. VOL. INF.--$95.

  2. CDV of Confederate President, Jefferson Davis.  The image remains relatively clear, but does have a little chipping around a couple of corners.--$48.

  3. Ultra rare and in very nice condition, DOUBLE Mosby signed Cabinet card.  The Cabinet card is from Cook's Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, and John Singleton Mosby himself gives a brief history of the origin of the portrait and also, additionally signs the Cabinet card on the reverse.  I suspect that very few DOUBLE Mosby signed Cabinet cards exist.--$2,950.SOLD

  4. Quite rare to find these days, an original, Election of 1864, Union Presidential Ticket, from Miami County, Ohio.  It lists Abraham Lincoln as the Presidential candidate and Andrew Johnson as the candidate for Vice President.  The ticket is in very nice condition, matted, and ready to hang.--$195.

  5. Civil War Era, large CDV album containing 15 images, some of which are military, and some of which are civilian.  The rarity in the album is a small piece of a Confederate flag that was captured at the Battle of Jackson Mississippi, on May 14, 1863.  Beneath the flag fragment is a yellowed, aged paper label giving the history of the fragment.  I have seen Confederate flag fragments on their own bring more than we are pricing this entire CDV album.--$395.SOLD

  6. Exceptional, fully cased, 1/6th plate, tintype of a well equipped Federal Cavalry trooper.  He has a Model 1860, .44 cal., Colt Army revolver across his chest and an 1840 Heavy Cavalry saber standing alongside.  He is also wearing a regulation Model 1851 Eagle sword belt rig and has a clearly visible crossed sabers hatpin on his cap.  The image is cased in a beautiful, patriotic, Gutta Percha, "UNION" case.  The case is marked, "Littlefield, Parsons & Co." patent union cases.  Only a few images per year this nice come along.--$750.

  7. Crisp - clear fully cased 1/6th plate tintype a young Federal enlistedman.  This is a seated pose wearing a shell jacket (likely artillery), and has nice clarity with no flaking at all.--$150.

  8. 1/6th plate, ambrotype of two seated Union soldiers that look to likely be brothers.  One is wearing a standard kepi, and the other is wearing an earlier Mexican War era hat.  The image is out of an Ohio estate and remains nice and clear.--$150.

  9. Nice crisp albumin photograph of Corp. John A. Gilmore and his 5 brothers along with an individual CDV of Corp. Gilmore.  Gilmore was a member of Co. "E" - 9th Ill. Vol. Inf. and was involved at both Battles of Fort Donelson and Shiloh.--$195. for BOTH IMAGES

  10. Quite rare "From Life" CDV of Confederate Brigadier General Humphrey Marshall.  General Marshall was from Kentucky and was very active during the Civil War Era, both militarily and politically.--$125.

  11. 1/6th plate, tintype of a double-armed, young Union Infantry soldier.  He is wearing his US beltrig with a sideknife stuck behind his belt and his Springfield musket at his side.  This image is in a 1/2 hard case and has very good content, but is unfortunately darker than we would like for it to be.  Even though somewhat dark, it is still a very nice image.--$195.

  12. 1/6th plate tintype of a fully equipped, Federal Infantry Enlistedman.  This is a standing view wearing a 9-button frock coat with US beltrig and cartridge box at his side.  His musket with bayonet stands in front of him.  The photograph is taken in front of a patriotic backdrop with tents, canons, and flags.  The photograph is housed in a 1/2 hard case and remains in good stable condition with no flaking at all.  The only negative is the image is unfortunately darker than what would be ideal.  Even though dark, the image has great content and would be a nice addition to a collection.--$175.

  13. Quite rare "From Life" Anthony CDV of Confederate General Sterling Price.  The image is a bit faded and has been trimmed to fit a 1/6th plate hard case.  It may not be in perfect condition, but it is definitely one that is hard to come by.--$150.

  14. Very scarce "From Life" C.D.V. of Confederate General John C. Breckinridge.  General Breckinridge was a past Vice President of the United States from the State of Kentucky.  During the Civil War, General Breckinridge was assigned to the Army of Tennessee under Confederate General Braxton Bragg.  General Bragg accused General Breckinridge of being in a drunken state at the Battles of Stones River and Missionary Ridge and thereby contributing to Confederate defeats at these sites.  This is a Brady-New York image.--$195. 

  15. Quite rare to find "from life" C.D.V. of Confederate General Gideon Johnson Pillow.  Well known for surrendering Fort Donelson to General Grant.--$150.

  16. 1/6th plate, fully cased ambrotype of a young Union Private.  The image has some fading, but in good light, is all completely visible.  In the back of the case is written "August 10, 1862, age 23".  This is a seated pose, and he is wearing an enlisted man's 9 - button frock coat and also his kepi.--$150.

  20. Beautiful condition original "Carbon Studio" albumin of Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard.  The image measures 4" by 6" and was published by "M. Miley and Son - Lexington, VA (Michael Miley)."  It remains in absolutely perfect condition.--$295.

  27. bugler.JPG (70709 bytes)If this image weren't so dark - It would be a BIG DOLLAR image.  It is a 1/9th plate tintype of a Federal BUGLER with his Bugle in his hand.  He is wearing a 9-button Federal enlistedman's frock coat, and is holding his bugle in his hand.  You can easily see the bugle, but the image is, unfortunately, quite dark.  Great content, but because it is so dark - priced to virtually give away.--$195.
  28.  unioncase.JPG (66572 bytes)unioncasecls.JPG (76244 bytes)unioncasebk.JPG (55756 bytes)Quite rare hanging style ornate gutta-percha case for a 1/6th plate tintype or ambrotype.  It is an "Improved UNION CASE" with an "1859" patent date.  When this case came out of the estate sale some of the corners were chipped, and I have had them professionally restored.  Perfect for your "extra nice image.--$150.
