Easily identifiable as 4th New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry by the nomenclature on his cap and the 4th N. H. V. issue Belgian copy of, or French Mod. 1842, .69 cal. musket, (see: An Introduction to Civil War Small Arms by Earl J. Coates & Dean S. Thomas) our man stands before the photographer’s lens with full complement of cartridge box and waist belt with cap box and bayonet scabbard. Though not legible in the photo but indicative of the 4th New Hampshire, are regimental markings on his canteen. An especially well posed and equipped New Hampshire Civil War troop with the depth and quality of the ruby-glass process, this desirable ¼ plate is offered from an old collection still housed in its Littlefield – Parsons & Co. Patent 1856 and 1857 gutta percha case. (Solid and in pleasing condition but with some expected edge chipping.) Lost in time is the significance of the hair mourning pin still mounted on the velvet inside cover. Clearly period original to the case and image, the T- back pin houses intwined light and dark hair of two individuals as was the period practice when memorializing the loss of a spouse. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
