Soldier with Smith & Wesson Pistol Sixth Plate Daguereotype

A handsome sixth plate daguereotype in a gold matte with glass showing a Union soldier in forage cap and shell jacket holding a small pistol. It is probably a Smith & Wesson first model or similar pistol. He is wearing an Artillery shell jacket, as his high collar with two buttons on each side is visible. He may also have a bowie knife in his belt. His buttons have been painted gold. Dimensions: 2 5/8 by 3 ¼ inches in the matte. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.
