Here is an image from my collection that I am only offering to fund another very expensive purchase.  This image was just purchased out of the "woodwork'" of Atlanta a few months ago.  The image is a sixth plate ambrotype in a half case.  The image looks like a young Georgian (the black hat) with the greatest expression you can find in an image.  The photograph is absolutely pristine.  Other than some dust (which most has been removed with compressed air), the image is virtually mint.  I cannot stress the clarity, composition, sharpness, contrast, appeal, etc. that this image has.  I hate to even put it up for sale, but when you have other things that trip your trigger, sacrifices must me made.  I have sold some killer Confederate images in the past that I have regretted to this day.  This will be another regret I am sure!!!  Unmatched quality piece!!!   Price  SOLD
Here is another killer 1/6th plate early war clear glass ambrotype.  This image comes in a full union case in fairly good condition.  This image came out of the Dallas area about 10 years ago and has only been in my collection.  The soldier has a "CS" egg oval buckle.  The photographer tinted "CS" over the top of the backwards "CS" on the belt.  The soldier also has what looks like a matching pair of homemade weapons.  His rifle and large bowie knife look like they have inlays of mother or pearl in the wood areas.  He is also wearing a canteen on his side.  Superb image that has not been offered ever before.  Image has the slightest bit of buffing marks in the background of the photo.  This ambrotype ranks with some of the best in my opinion.  Great photograph!!!    sold

Here is a fantastic early war South Carolina officer ambrotype.  This image comes in a half case with his ID on the back.  This was James Gist who was the brother of CSA General States Rights Gist.  Yes, his brother's name was really States Rights.  This family was of prominent South Carolina lineage.  States Rights and James also had a cousin William Henry Gist, who was the governor of South Carolina and played a major role as an advocate of secession.  James Gist was aide-de-camp to his brother.  In this photograph, he is shown with shoulder boards and the rank of major.  This image is probably militia as his uniform is not standard Confederate.  His hat says "SCV" also.  When he was a part of the CS General Staff, he was a captain.  James died of typhoid fever in Mississippi (1863).  His brother S.R. Gist was killed in action at the battle of Franklin.  This is one of those images that should be in the South Carolina archives.  Price SOLD
Here are two links to more information on both James and States Rights:

Price Sold (thanks Peggy)
Here is one of the nicest quarter plate ambrotypes I have had lately.  This image comes in a full split case.  Image is much brighter than my scan too.  There really isn't any faults on this image.  I love the lazy eye of the soldier on the far right.  Image is about perfect.  Price 1250.00 - since nobody has bit on this for over a year I figured I would move it to another sight on consignment for way more. :)....crazy how things on here don't sell for reasonable, but they sell on another site for an added 10%....or 30% on this one. Too bad.
Here is a great ninth plate early war clear glass ambrotype with the brown painted backing.  In the back of the case in pencil is written "Arthur McCord".  He was a member of the 7th West Virginia Infantry.  This soldier wears an oval belt plate that shows no details and holds a Colt Root across his chest.  Nice image with identification that is solid and not some fabricated story.  Cool early image of a soldier who made it through the war.  Price on sold
One of the best images I have found out of the woods in years.  This image was found in the sticks of Tennessee.  I still think he is a Georgia soldier because of the dark jacket.  The sixth plate early clear glass ambrotype is killer.  The backing was repainted by me because the cloth was almost a pale brown color.  The repaint brought out the image much better.  The soldier holds a massive bowie knife and a Whitney revolver.  He is probably about 18 years old too.  Just a fantastic image right out of the attic like we all like them.  Price SOLD
Here is a nice early war quarter plate ambrotype of an armed civilian or Confederate militiaman.  He had to have been a volunteer in the early days of the war.  He is armed with a bowie knife and a colt pocket pistol.  The image has dust on it and the corner where it looks like the glass broke is not broken at all.  The image was probably done by an unskilled photographer who didn't get enough emulsion in that corner.  The image originated in Arkansas and comes with a note about someone who is most likely this soldier's wife.  Her name was Amanda Ledford.  It should be fairly easy to find the name of this guy based on his wife's name and date of death.  A nice clear image that would be very expensive if he were wearing a standard CS uniform.  Price SOLD
Here is a fantastic sixth plate ambrotype in a half case.  The image shows a soldier with a great unibrow.  You can also see the gold-painted "US" on his belt plate although it didn't show up in my scan.  The image is amazing condition with no real problems.  There is one spot on the right side near the mat which has a weird haze.  You can see it just to the right of his hip.  It is not detracting at all just mentioned for accuracy's sake.  Killer image!!
Price 575.00 - sold
Here is a great ninth plate ambrotype in a half case showing a young firefighter with his great helmet.  The helmet says "Hydraulic - 9 - C.G."....The ambro is bright and clear and has no problems just some dust on the coverglass.  Sorry for the broken-link image.  It is some sort of digital glitch.  Image is perfect.  Pretty much in the same condition as the day it was made.  Price 350.00 SOLD
Here is a superb ninth plate octagonal ambrotype of a young Confederate soldier.  He wears the type of uniform you see in North Carolina photographs.  This image is crystal clear and much brighter than my jpeg on here.  The image comes in a trashed union case, but the image is pristine.  Nice image that won't break the bank.  Price SOLD

Here is a great quarter plate early war ambrotype of an officer with his sword.  The picture is about as focused as you will ever seen in a period photograph.  Click on the image and you will see a very large scan of the soldier an the true color of the image.  Just sharp as a tack.  Crazy awesome focus on this one.  Price 450.00 - also, no case, just the image, mat and preserver.- SOLD
Nice ninth plate ruby ambrotype of a young sunburned Confederate soldier.  The image has the feel of a Georgia man because of the trim on his coat.  The image has solarization, etc, but nice and clear shot of his battleworn face.  Image also comes in a nice union case with no problems.  Really a nice representative image of the Southern soldier.  Cool.  Price sold

Here is a super cool early clear glass sixth plate ambrotype of a soldier with period pencil id in the back of the ratty case.  All the components of this image are totally original to the piece.  The image has some spotting, etc, but great coloration and about as solid of an identification that you can find.  His name was James H. M. Perry and he was a Sgt. in the 85th Ohio Infantry.  Killer history and coloring to the image.  Price 450.00 - sold

Here is a really cool sixth plate ruby ambrotype in a half case.  The image shows a very young trooper from the 11th New Hampshire Volunteers.  He was also in Company I as you can see.  The image is very clear and has no problems other than the area center bottom.  Still a cool image with a unit that was heavily engaged at Fredericksburg, The Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House.  I looked at the 11th NHV regimental history and was hoping to find his identity, but no luck.  Price 300.00 sold
Killer sixth plate early clear glass ambroytpe of a young Confederate soldier.  He has the most amazing red tinted coat as well as the stripes on his sleeves and pants.  The image originated out of Louisiana a few weeks ago.  As you can see if has a crack unfortunately, but it lines up perfect and has been stabilized.  Overall a great image that I would keep if other stuff would sell.  SOLD

Beautiful sixth plate clear glass ambrotype in a full split case.  The image is done in relievo style where the photographer only blackened the area behind the soldier so he really pops off the plate.  He is a young guy with a colt pocket revolver across his chest.  Primo image in primo condition.  Price 425  Out on approval for sale - now sold
Here is an interesting image that has me baffled.  It is a minty sixth plate clear glass ambrotype of two very young guys in uniform.  They look too young to be in the military, but I have had documented 15 year old Confederate soldier images before.  These two guys look like bellhops or something like that, but they have the eagle military insignia on their caps.  I will leave it up to the buyer to figure out who or what these youngs guys are.  425.00 sold

Here is a nice sixth plate clear glass ambrotype of what I am sure is a Mississippi soldier.  There is a star on his hat as seen in MS and TX soldiers.  I sourced this image out of Mississippi about 10 years ago and have had it in my collection since.  The image is definitely a Charles Rees image from Richmond although this one is not signed.  If it were signed it would be worth at least double.  Nice image with dirty coverglass.  Price Traded.
Here is a great ninth plate ambrotype that is almost lifelike it is so clear.  He has a colt pocket pistol as clear as day.  Great beard too.  Image comes in a half case and has the most minor buffing marks in the image probably from being wiped off with a dry cloth.  Kick butt image.  Price 350.00 sold

Here is a great sixth plate ambrotype of a very young Confederate Lieutenant.  He is wearing a red sash that is what the "officer of the day" sash looked like.  Amazing image with solarization around the perimeter of the image.  His face is crystal clear to the point that you can see his acne pitting and facial scruff.  I wish I knew who he was.  Sold.
Absolutely superb sixth plate clear glass relievo ambrotype in a full union case.  This image was done by Charles Rees of Richmond, VA., altough it is not physically signed.  There is no doubt it is his photo.  The image is crystal clear and as sharp as you can get.  I regret selling images like this, but money talks and you-know-what walks.  Killer museum piece image.  SOLD SOLD
Amazing sixth plate ambrotype of a Texas Rebel with four weapons.  He also has an incredibly rare two piece star belt buckle.  Image came out of the woodwork of Baton Rouge, Louisiana a few months back.  One of my best finds in a long time.  SOLD
Amazing quad union case with four confederate ambrotypes.  The images are all sixth plate images.  I acquired this set of images untouched with dust and crud everywhere.  You could tell they hadn't been removed from the case in years.  I believe all of these men are either brothers or at least, relatives.  They all look to be Mississippi soldiers too.  Plumed and flamboyant hats always seem to associated with Mississippi rebs.  Ultra cool set of images.  I only wish we knew who they were.  This set is not put together, but is absolutely an original piece.  Price SOLD

This is a fantastic and minty quarter plate early collodion ambrotype on glass.  The image shows an Infantryman with his Enfield rifle (update:  a good friend wrote me and gave me insight into what kind of rifle this is.  He said it is a model 1855 rifle musket with a rarely seen long-range rear sight), a large knife and a revolver in his belt.  The cuffs and collar have been tinted blue.  The image was done in a silhouette, so the image pops with the black background.  Image has a period paper mat as used by some photographer's who couldn't get the supplies needed.  Quarter plate larger ambrotype in a half case.  Killer condiiton to say the least.. Price 3500.00

Here is a nice sixth plate ambrotype in a full case showing a Union sergeant with great muttonchops.  The image has solarization but the image is super clear.  The ID on the back isn't period, but it also wasn't done yesterday.  It says David I Derby, but it is actually David I. Darby.  He was a sergeant in the 6th New York Heavy Artillery.  I think the ID is solid, they just got the last name off a little.  There is no David Derby in the CW database that ever was a SGT.  Nice image and clear.  Price 350.00
This is a wonderful sixth plate ruby ambrotype of a New Hampshire Volunteer soldier.  He is tripled armed and is also wearing a rifleman's buckle.  The focus is a little softer towards the middle of the image, but this photo is fresh and in near mint condition.  There is a modern pen ID that says "Henry Partridg"...I believe this ID is right as he was in the 9th NHV and Company I.  Henry was WIA at the battle of Poplar Springs Church, VA, and at Petersburg.  Minty image in a full case.  1500.00 SOLD
