Tintype U.S. Indian War Corporal & Sergeant with Bedroll, c1890s

We sold this item at auction for $440
 in December 2020.

This circa 1890s tintype photo shows two young soldiers involved in the United States Indian Wars conflict of the late 19th century.

Based upon their uniform chevrons, one soldier is a Corporal, the other a Company QM Sergeant. They pose in a studio setting flanking a pillar which bears a menacing-looking face, their rather messy bedrolls on the floor in the foreground.

Tintype measures approximately 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ inches.
