A nice tintype of a young Union soldier standing at attention with his musket and bayonet at his side. The image is a period copy of another tintype. To create another image, the photographer took a new tintype of the old tintype, so to speak.
The original mat is visible in the image, in fact. The image is in excellent condition and displays very well under the glass. It is housed in a full thermoplastic cased (Berg 1-104 The Calmady Children) that has some significant dings and looseness to the hinges. The small metal tab used for closure was also sheared off.
