Civil War Tintype Union Soldier Daguerreotype Case African Native American
Original Civil War Tintype of a Union soldier in Daguerreotype Case. He is believed to be of African or Native American descent. This photo was damaged by asphalt crumbling from the back of the tintype. The image is harder to see in photos through the glass, as it probably needs cleaned and due to the glare. The last photo is a picture of it's original undamaged condition.

I sent this to World renowned tintype and Civil War photography expert Rob Gibson, and here is what he had to say about it. Hey Rob, great talking to you today.

From what I can tell the photo is a Union, African American or Native American soldier. Nice bright image with some hand coloring. Judging from the wipe marks I would say the image was unvarnished, and part of the emulsion was wiped away. If it were varnished, it would appear smeared, but not darkened and scratched. Probably not a lot that can be done it bring the image back.
