The photograph is behind glass.. And it has a shaped inner gold mount under the glass and a gold raised floral design frame sat on top of the glass.... Keeping it all in place. The photograph has a crinkled look about it when looking close.
Looking at it from the back I have found it is just an old photograph pasted to a bit of stiff leather like material.. Thats why its got this crinkle look about it. What country is the soldier from? Well I cannot fully see the badges... He has an American look but of course could quite easy be an English soldier.
