I believe this to be an original tintype photo in half of a case, the cover is missing. The subject matter appears to be a man who could be a soldier? He is wearing a double breasted coat and a cape.He has a beard and mustache and is wearing a hat. His left hand has a glove on it and he is holding a sword that is gold gilded at the top. The buttons and one ring on the right hand are also gold gilded. Any questions or any further knowledge you would like to share, please message me. It measures approximately 3 1/4 by 3 3/4 inches.
