CIVIL WAR CDV ~ ARMED YOUTH ~ TAD LINCOLN? ~ by S. ROE
Offered is a Civil War era wet plate albumen carte de visitie of an armed youth. This one came out of a Civil War album that I acquired a few years back, and written on the album page was a notation that this was Tad Lincoln. The resemblance to known images of Tad is there, but I’ve can’t say with any certainty that it is. I’ve tried over the years to find another copy of the image and have had no luck. I know some branches of the military made uniforms for him and he was photographed in several different uniforms. The photographer is Sylvester Roe from Flushing (Long Island) N.Y., so the possibility is there. If it is Tad, it is a un-cataloged image of him. If it’s not, it’s a great image of a young soldier. I’ve included a few known images of Tad for your comparison. These are not included with the sale obviously and are just shown for comparison.
The CDV shows some typical wear and along the edges of the mount. Light wear and minor scuffing on the surface, with some foxing noted. Great period image.
