Back Again...most recent finds!

Article about: Welcome back. How much did you pay for the civil gas mask and carrier? I just saw one today in an antique mall but didn't get it. Not sure a value on them. PM me is you'd like. Thanks. Nice

    Is that a tin type Blitzkrieg. Civil war photography is fascinating.

    I believe some were called Dagaueretypes. Might have mispelled this. if that is legit it could be worth some good cash. Have it checked out. Wish I could tell you more but am no expert myself. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

    Any idea where I could start? I know very little about Civil war items (as I stated earlier)

    Steve, would a State Militia be the same as a Military Academy - or be made up
    from one - as this is what it looks like to me.........

    It's a great photo. These are also called 'Carte de Visite'.
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I always liked the Civil Defense helmets. They were "dime a dozen" when I was a kid but you don't see them too much any more.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys!
    I had no idea it was post civil war...seemed period. Oh well. I still love it.
    If I could read the cursive on the back, could anyone direct me to a website where I could research the names? Any online archives?

    Thanks! I like the one with the decal a bit more. I haven't been seeing too much of these either....probably sucked up by collectors. They are neat pieces and don't cost a fortune.
