    This one is the best outdoor image that I have ever owned-- in my opinion a portrait in perfection from the Civil War.

    No visible movement from the horse or rider, crisp focus and unusual contrast for an outdoor view (most are on the dark side).

    It is a quarter plate tintype and shows a Civil War drummer on horseback. He has a cavalry sword hanging off to his side and several other cavalry equipment items visible as well.

    In the background a horse/ rider, another horse and wagon wheel are visible.

    I have no idea where the scene was photographed.

      I have collected, and sometimes dealt in CW hard images since 1982,
      and I can say that you have outstanding taste to show this image!
