Fresh from a estate and I think this is a civil war solider. I don't know much about this stuff so please look at pics but I do know that it is a old original.
The frame is a little over 4-1/2 x 3-1/2. It's hard to get good pictures of it but if you need more just let me know. The pic looks to be very nice and the frame does come apart in two pieces.
