    I just purchased this nice 1/6 plate tintype of an early war Union soldier.

    He is wearing a frock coat and holding his M1858 Hardee hat with a company letter of "C" inside the Infantry horn.

    In his belt the soldier holds a revolver (Remington?) and a large knife.

      No matter what years they served or side they were on HEROES ALL!!!

      Not a Remington and also the pistol is hammerless.

      That's an interesting observation about the pistol being hammerless! Does that mean it has been disabled and cannot be fired?
      I think the belt has several different wear-patterns made by the buckle as if it has been worn by different size men.

      There were and are hammerless revolvers. And I've got nothing. Pin fire?
    5. flashlarue flashlarue, 3 years ago
      The medallion on the grip looks like a Cooper pistol. The hammer is missing from a pistol which should have a hammer.

      I take back my observation that the hammer is missing closer observation shows the hammer is there but the spur is missing. On a single action blackpower gun this would have.made it impossible to cock.
