Quarter-plate daguerreotype of Samuel Axtell Kitch (1834-1903), who fought in the Civil War as lieutenant in the 7th Illinois Cavalry. His brothers also served; his brother Ira was wounded at the Battle of Spotsylvania and died in Fredericksburg.

He's identified inside of the case in period pencil:

Mr. S.A. Kitch
his likeness

Dag is in excellent condition with original seals intact. Full leather case, a design which I think is considered rare. The case is intact though the leather on the spine is a bit delicate Dag has a tarnish ring and a few random tarnish spots but no damage.

Shipping: First Class mailer or boxed Priority Mail.
