  5. Thanks for looking scott and racer! scott
  6. Nice to have images of relatives from so long ago! These are actually made out of an early composite material called thermoplastic and not gutta percha (a tree sap). They are often called Union ...

  9. Thanks for looking roddy! scott
  10. Thanks tintyper-- I passed this one on to another collector! scott
  11. A Southern BM always adds to desirability, but they are significantly harder to find. scott
  12. Thanks much scott. scott
  13. Thanks fran. scott
  14. Thanks fran. scott
  15. There used to be an online seller who would regularly sell mini balls for $35- $50 just because he said they were from Gettysburg. The price made no sense. Of course he included a Certificate of Aut...
  16. Nice musician! scott
  17. Great image! Bucktails are very popular-- had a few with the 150th. Here is a Gettysburg KIA from the same Regiment: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/121049-civil-war-cdv-of-heroic-buc...
  18. Great image of an older yank! scott
  19. Anthony cdv? scott

  22. Thanks ted and tintype. scott
  23. Thanks for looking vo! scott
  24. Great glass and great work with the ID welz! scott
  25. Thanks much official! scott
  26. New collectors often fall victim to the hype. I cannot recount the number of times I have seen an item sell for 3 or 4 times value when the seller says it came from Gettysburg with ONLY their word ...
  27. BEAUTIFUL Welz! scott
  28. Lots of frauds out there with bogus Gettysburg stuff. Without iron clad provenance, I won't pay for the Gettysburg premium. New collectors often fall into the trap. Reminds me of the Gettysbur...
  29. Yep, that would be a French backmark and could be from the War (vs. occupation era German markings). scott
  30. Nice image-- looks like a 9 button frock coat and hardee hat (w/o insignia and pin). The backdrop looks like one that I have seen from a Nashville photographer. May just be SIMILAR, I cannot ...
  31. Anything with a Gettysburg connection carries an almost mystical quality when it comes to collectors! scott
  32. Stone was a very interesting Civil War character! scott
  33. Thanks bobby. Unfortunately, Civil War Naval officer photos don't have a big collecting audience. Images of enlisted sailors are very popular and bring very good money. scott
  34. Thanks for looking tintyper! scott
  35. Concur with Middle East origin and tourist piece. This type of item is plentiful in souks throughout the region. They are often sold as "antique" to tourists. scott
  36. Checking behind the case for an ID is one of the first things I do with a new acquisition. I purchased a full plate framed tintype of a CS major from an image dealer one time and was surprised to f...
  37. GREAT vase alan! I have a twin: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/180764-kralik-knuckle-vase scott
  38. Yes-- bargains abound for those willing to do the work and dig through boxes, etc... I used to go to Gun Shows and All era Militaria Shows just to buy Civil War items-- now they are right there at ...
  39. Sounds like a nice grouping! scott
  40. Yep rob, the mustache is nice! scott
  41. Just an everyday guy from the late 19th century. You are correct-- not much in the way of value. The image condition is very rough as well. scott
  42. ALL of the shows that I go to have gone that route and allow WW1/ WW2 dealers in as well. I have found some great Civil War bargains hiding on a WW2 dealers table! scott
  43. It is always nice to share INFORMATION and JPGS with descendants. But, BEWARE there are cons out there who are after the item and have no connection with the original soldier! I have run into fo...
  44. Thanks for looking rade! scott
  45. Yep-- it is at the Racetrack. It is a great location-- very nice facilities. There is a lot of space in the building for expansion. I think that they have about 500 tables of dealers in the show ...
  46. What shows do you attend? I set up at about 7 a year: Dalton GA, Chicago (Spring and Fall), Mansfield OH, Richmond (JUL), Gettysburg (Fall) and Nashville/ Franklin. scott
  47. They took a big hit in the recession. Most images that sell today are priced less than what they would have sold for in the early to mid 1990s. Confederate Hard images seem to be the big exce...
  48. Confederate "hard" images are at an all time high. I am often surprised at prices at shows for them. They are very hard to buy these days. The paper images (cdv/ albumen) are less appreciated and...
  49. The pin itself is called a Distinctive Unit Insignia (DUI). They are typically called "unit crests" by soldiers. The 24th FA was part of the 12th Infantry Division-- often called the Philippine Di...
