It is an interesting item. I believe this is an Irish Brigade soldier based on the markings on the hat. There is some damage to the item. It is missing the booklet or the frame. It is about 4 and 4/16 by 3 and 3/16 inches.I think the soldier has a musician's sword hanging from his belt. I think he has a canteen hanging off to his right side.
He is holding a nice appearing rifle. I do not know if this is original or not.
