Here is a nice TINTYPE view IN A CASE showing a SOLDIER IN UNIFORM in a STUDIO SHOT circa 1860s---this might be a CIVIL WAR SOLDIER but I do not know for sure. The TINTYPE is in a GOLD METAL CASE inset into a BLACK CASE with BROWN FELT. The case appears to have NEWER TAPE HOLDING HALVES TOGETHER. The tintype has HAND-COLORING in spots The picture is roughly 3 1/4" by 2 3/4". The case is 3 1/4" by 3 5/8".
It is in GOOD CONDITION with light wear, smudging/marks from developing, DARKER IMAGE----SOME PICTURES ARE TAKEN WITH A FLASH that MADE THE CONTRAST BETTER THAN IT ACTUALLY IS---a SCAN is included which shows the image out of focus since the tintype was in the case---the image is BETWEEN THE 2 CONTRASTS SHOWN--------SEE THE SCANS.
