This tintype is of a young soldier. He is holding his sword and revolver. I dont know how the buttons, sword handle, belt buckle, and revolver trigger guard is gold looking.
You can tell the uniform is a rough cotton. It is a 1/9th plate. 2 1/2 by 2 inches. The top of the case is gone. The picture seems to be in good condition.Im not sure if thats the mans name in the case or the photographers name.
