OUR MOTTO IS "RESCUING THE PAST FOR YOUR FUTURE" AND WE STAND BY THAT. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND CHECK OUT ALL OF OUR OTHER AUCTIONS!Measurements: Overall outer dimensions of the case are: 2 7/16" Wide X 2 15/16" Tall X 5/8 Thick This is a 1/9 Plate. We are not collectors or experts so please be sure to see all of the photos and consider them a part of the description. This Tintype photo and original case are all original. The metal photo is magnetic. In my opinion the photo is in Good to very good condition with light wear in my opinion and the full case is in good condition. Amazing it exists especially considering the fact that this is from somewhere between 1860 to the early 1900's!
The image is of a Man with a coat of some kind on, maybe a suit jacket or uniform of some kind and a pipe in his mouth. The inner copper frame is marked Hoolmes Booth & Haydons, Waterbury Conn. This is, from the information that we have from the modern notes on paper found behind the photo: A photo of Private James Bowen (James W Bowen we believe) of Company B in the 43rd Virginia Cavalry BN. According to the internet, he was in the class of 1866 VMI Cadet.
He appears on the 4th quarter, 1864 clothing receipt roll. His reported age was 33 and was 5' 10 tall, light complected with dark hair and blue eyes. He lived in Remington, Fauquier Co.
He was part of Mosby's Rangers. A little history on the Confederate Mosby's Rangers according to the internet. On January 26, 1863 to conduct a raid on Federal picket line. From their modest beginning they grow to be one of the best know of all ranger commands.
By the end of the war, its roster would number almost 2,000 men. The leader of this little band was Private John S.
Mosby disbanded the 43rd at Salem on April 21,1865. There was some confusion as to what to call the Confederate 43rd Battalion and ended up being a matter of contention during the war.The members of the battalion were referred to as soldiers, partisans, rangers, and guerrillas. Due to this issue the Union viewed them as not soldier like and as a loose band of roving thieves. Northern newspapers and Unionists referred to them as guerrillas, a term of defamation at the time. Mosby himself avoided overtly militaristic words like "troops" or "soldiers" or "battalion" in favor of the more familial "Mosby's Men" or "Mosby's command". All the information we present to you is from the research the prior owner did and wrote on the note that we will include and that you see in the photos as well as additional research we did on the internet, there is a lot more out there on Mosby's Rangers. All of the other tintypes, ambrotype, and Daguerreotypes came from his estate that we will be listing and were mainly military pictures and soldiers. The glass itself does not show any cracks and only a few small fleabites on the inside edge under the copper as well as minor scuffs which is normal. There is the Tintype photo, then the glass, then a thin copper detailed frame and then another detailed copper frame that wraps around to the back and holds it all together.
The outer black case has a really ornate and pretty design to it. It is complete as you can see in the photos. The case shows some wear but the red interior fabric is pretty nice with minimal wear!You will get the additional pieces of paper that were found behind it with the modern research notes on it to go with the photo. Again, we are not experts or collectors, but the prior owner was serious about his passion for collecting and for his research!!
