This is a world-class sixth-plate civil war cavalry image that would be difficult to improve upon in terms of its content and clarity. This young soldier is dressed in the standard cavalry shell jacket and quilted pants. The best part is his weaponry. The Colt Navy Revolver in his belt and Cavalry Sabre are great, but pale in comparison to the martial Springfield Single-shot Pistol/carbine with detachable Shoulder-stock that is resting on his thigh. This is a super quality and extremely rare image, worthy of the best collections. A similar photo was sold on Ebay last year for over $4,000.00 with scores of underbidders. I like this one better. If it doesn't sell, it's going into my little display of collectibles.
