CIVIL WAR OFFICER:  Appears to be Union.  About 2" X 2 1/2" and I believe called a "9th Plate". It is a tintype housed in a leatherette case that has the hinge broken and has scuffs etc.  Image is pretty nice as is the gold colored metal framing.  Gold tint buttons and watch chain.  (There is some reflection of my camera lens, top half center).

HISTORIC SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR, 100 + year old photo of the camp of the "1st TEXAS VOL. INF. BUENA VISTA, CUBA":  Very old real photograph taken in 1898 or 1899 in Cuba. The photo is framed and under glass but it has suffered severe soiling and wear.  I did not even clean the glass.  If it is disassembled and the glass cleaned front and back it may look better.  The photograph itself maybe could be professionally restored.  This is the real deal and not some recent print.  
$29.00
LITTLE SOLDIER PHOTOGRAPH, FRAMED:  I suspect this old photo pre-dates WW2 judging by the Sam Browne belt rig the child wears, maybe 1920's-1930's.  The frame is metal.  Originally the frame had a wire bale that would support it when displayed on a table.  Wire support could easily be reproduced if wanted or hang this on the wall. Proud little feller.

NAVY AVIATORS WITH A BIPLANE: The men around this old Biplane look like WW2 U.S.N. aviators.  They are wearing a variety of Navy jackets.  Fellow kneeling on the left has a dog mascot.  Could be a class of some sort as the man on the left could be their instructor.  I believe this to be a photo of a photo due to the borders visible at top and bottom.

CIVIL WAR TINTYPE, SERGEANT:  Very nice tintype of a Civil War Sgt.  Size is about 2" X 2-1/2" oval. Nice sharp image in good condition.  You can see that he is wearing the NCO belt plate; he has the Infantry Bugle hat device.  He has Sergeant Chevrons. There looks to be something hanging on his right side, behind his arm, where normally the sidearm would be carried.....he is possibly armed. There is lighting and camera reflections on the glass.  The case is in lesser condition with only a portion of the cloth hinge intact.  Interior velvet is missing.  The gold tint outer frame is damaged, on the right side mostly.  Great image of not so common NCO.

OF KANSAS CITY, MO UNION STATION:  All of the above information was written on the frame of this tintype in 1911 by Gerrit Smith.  There was an officer in the 129th Illinois by the name of Smith who may have been Gerrit's father for whom Ed was an Orderly.  Ed, (E.J. Sanford) had a nice career after the War starting as a Conductor in 1866 on the Chicago and Alton RR and ending up in 1911 as President and Supt. of the Kansas City Union Station.  No research done other than what is written on it.

HISTORIC WWI PHOTOS OF GENERAL "BLACK JACK" PERSHING, IN FRANCE.  AWARDING MEDALS TO 5th DIVISION OFFICERS:  There are 12 of these photos that were taken at the same time.  Appear to be in France when Pershing reviewed and awarded Army Distinguished Service medals to some 5th Division  Officers.  Medals were most likely earned at St. Mihiel or Meuse-Argonne battles.  These photos show a lot of detail to the horse equipment as well as the Doughboys field gear.  Good images of proper wear for WW1 Officers.  There is more text on the photos so read that when you look at the pictures.  These 12 photos have a LARGE image size of about 16" X 9-1/4" with a white border of about 1/2" giving a general overall size of about 17-1/2" X  10-1/4".  One photo, (# 9) has had the white border trimmed off.  This series of photos is on heavy type paper and they are not on glossy photo paper as we know it. There are a few edge tears, damage and stains in the white border areas, but I noticed none in the image areas.  Neat images of WWI Doughboys, uniforms and equipment; horses and equipment and officer uniforms.  Sold only as a 12 photo set, in rigid plastic sleeves to keep them flat and protected.

U.S. MARINE AND JAPANESE OFFICER:  No provenance with this but I know that the USMC was in China at the end of WW2 to round up the 500,000 Japanese soldiers that were in China and to escort them as POW's back to Japan.  The Marines occasionally had to return weapons to the Japanese POW's so they could protect themselves from the Chinese who wished to kill them.  Anyway, a 4-1/2" X 6" (has been shortened at the bottom) photo of a USMC Marine and a Japanese Officer.  ID'd on the back as "Uncle Clinton and one of his Japanese pals".  Neat image.

TWO ALBUMS, OVER 635 PHOTOS.  BILLY D. STANFILL:  There is a large album containing over 560 photos and a small album containing over 75 photos.  In addition there are a handful of other photos.  Also, I found an Obituary for Billy.  The large album has the leather string that bound it together broken so all of the pages are loose.  I think because of that they are not in order.  I just got these albums Dec. 22nd so have not had a lot of time to work with them; but, it looks like Billy did his training with the 4th Army at Fort Polk, LA.  There are a few Texas photos so I think his leave after training was taken in Texas.  From Ft. Polk he sailed on the Transport Ship Henry Gibbons to Germany and assigned to the 7th Army. There are a few photos taken of other European cities and I believe those would be from an R&R while in Germany.  In a couple of the Germany photos I can read a date on a vehicle license plate as 1951.  From Germany it looks like he went to Italy.  Again, the pages are not in order as there are Fort Polk photos near the end of the album and they should be near the front.  Also, there are two photos of Japanese flags souvenirs that probably are WW2, but ended up in this album.  Some of the units shown in the photos are the 816th FA BN, 598th AFA BN and 759th MP BN.
The small album looks to be from the same time period but it looks like the soldiers are different people?  So, it is
either a continuation of the large album or it is an album of a different soldier.  Included with these albums are a few pieces of paperwork that has names on them.  With proper research more may be disclosed.  These albums are a great source of reference for uniforms; vehicles; field equipment and weapons.  Several Machine Guns are photo'd.  Lots of jeeps and trucks.  Some jeeps have a large bazooka type weapon mounted on them with the name of "The Dog".  Lots of interesting material here.
