Union 106th Infantry with Musket, Bayonet Sixth plate Tintype in Union Case

A very interesting image of a Union Infantryman of “C” Company, 106th Infantry, with musket in one hand, drawn bayonet in the other hand, wearing all his accoutrements with bayonet sheath, cap box, and cartridge box on sling all visible. He is in frock coat and forage cap with the letter “C” and number 106 painted on his cap in gold. His oval belt plate is also painted. There were 5 different 106th Infantry Regiments to which he might have belonged: New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. His rifle may be an Austrian Lorenz, and if so, that would narrow it down. The image is in a gold matte, in a fine Union case with purple velvet pad, and a handsome Union Shield and motto, “Union” on both sides of the case. Dimensions: 3 ¼ by 3 5/8 by ¾ inches when the case is closed. Processing and shipping with in the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.
