QUARTER PLATE AMBRO TYPE PHOTO(CIVIL WAR OFFICER)
Age. Circa 1800s
Composition. See below
Size. 3 ¼” high x 2 ¾” wide frame
Comments. This quarter plate ambrotype is of a seated Civil War officer in what appears to be his dress uniform and he looks somewhat young for his rank. It is a formal sitting and has very nice details as well as a good exposure. It is mounted in a two-part brass frame which has raised as well as pressed designs and is quite decorative. This item is in good shape with normal use wear, has some slightly darker spots in the brass and has some soiling. Give it a cleaning and you’ll have a very nice, handsome soldier who was your instant relative in the Civil War or a great collectible. An ambrotype is a positive photograph on treated glass.

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"
**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.
**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
