1861 Melainotype of a Confederate officer. Really, for quality, condition and content one of the finest Confederate images we've ever offered. Plate with embossed Melainotype patent information embossed along bottom edge, unquestionably dating the image to 1861. Officer wears gray frock coat with high standup collar, black flashing on edges of pocket on each breast and the shoulder straps appear to have black centers, possibly denoting North Carolina. Wears rather narrow brimmed slouch hat with one side turned up. Holds five ball pillow pommel sword over his shoulder, the sword dating to circa 1825. Interestingly wearing what appears to be two watch chains. Classic wide leather belt with two leather tabs and two horseshoe shaped iron buckles for closure.
