(2) CIVIL WAR AMBRO TYPE PHOTOS

Composition. See below
Size. 3 ¾” high x 3 ¼" wide or 3 ½" high x 3” wide frames
Rating: 9
Comments. This lot includes a very sharp image of a Union soldier in a seated position which looks to be a studio portrait. He has hand-painted details on his uniform and a good exposure. It is mounted in a two-part brass frame which has raised as well as pressed designs. The smaller photo, per the consignor is Pvt. Henry J Baker of Pennsylvania who was mustered in 8/22/1862 and mustered out on 6/20/1865. This dapper gent is in his uniform and has crisp details as well as a very good exposure. It is mounted in a two-part brass frame which has raised designs on the outer border and flags, drum, a canon as well as” THE UNION NOW AND FOREVER” on the inner frame as seen in our photo. Both of these 1/8 plate ambrotypes are mounted in decorative vintage hard plastic cases which have rings for mounting on the back. Give them a light cleaning and this pair of instant relatives will make a nice addition to your Civil War collection or family tree. An ambrotype is a positive photograph on treated glass.

Maximum Bidding

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"
