PD75: 1846c British Army Line Infantry Officer Daguerreotype of Company Rank 9th Plate (unknown maker & regiment) – He is a British Army line infantry officer of company rank in Frock Coat of the pattern worn from the 1830’s. It was the undress garment typically worn for day-to-day wear when not on a specific duty. Foot Guards had a different pattern with the famous beribboned front. The dress regulations state that the coat is single breasted with 8 regimental buttons down the front and 2 small ones on the cuff. Plain Prussian collar. The shoulder straps are based on blue cloth edged with gold lace and a gilt metal crescent. Condition wise, there are few very light wisps on the plate that do not take away from the image.
