Sale 38 Lot 429

A fine grouping of items owned by Sgt. Henry R. Kintz of the 200th Pennsylvania Vols.. Kintz mustered-in Aug. 29, 1864 and was mustered-out May 30, 1865 seeing fierce battle at Fort Stedman and before Petersburg. Included in this grouping is a cased tintype (front cover detached), 2 3/4" x 4" showing Kintz in a full standing view in sergeant's uniform with his rifle and bayonet at his side with an American flag attached to the top of the rifle so that the weapon serves as a makeshift flagpole, with Kintz's buttons and a chestplate hand-colored in gold. Also included is his NCO belt buckle, his Dec. 9, 1864 field appointment at "Camp before Petersburg" to the rank of First Sergeant and signed by Co. C. W. DIVEN, his "eagle" discharge certificate, an 1864 furlough issued to Kintz, endorsed by Union Major Gen. JOHN. G. PARKE on verso (split at seams), an 1895 9th Corps 3rd Div. Reunion ribbon (stained) with a flyer for the event, and two of Kintz's marriage certificates showing that he apparently married two sisters ten years apart. A fine representational grouping, in overall very good condition.
Estimate $ 400-500
