Union Drummer Boy: Sixth Plate Tintype

Union Drummer Boy: Sixth Plate Tintype. Hand-tinted sixth plate tintype in embossed leather case depicting a standing view of a drummer boy. His hat, knapsack, coat front and drum rim are tinted red. He is posed with his drum sticks placed on the drum head, ready to tap out a martial tune. The rare image is very clear with excellent contrast.
