Two images: 1/6 plate ruby ambrotype of a soldier, with original hand-tinting, and 1/9 ambrotype of a woman with tinted dress.

These two images were purchased together. The soldier is not identified, however, inside of the woman's case is a possible clue to his identity.. written on the inside of her case is,

"From E.L. Cash to Jannie? A. Walsh, Dec 25, 1862" Followed by a couple of more lines I cannot make out.

It's possible E.L. Cash was Emily L. Dakin Cash, who was married to Stephen H. Cash, a member of the 1st or 4th (I saw references online to both) Michigan in the Civil War. Identity is not guaranteed, obviously, but it's a good starting point for further research.

The soldier's ambrotype is in excellent antique condition, underside of the glass slightly dusty, case covers separated. The woman's ambro has some light age-related darkening, dusty glass, separated case covers.
