He could have also been serving as an artificer in the military although there is no way to know for sure. This would have been a common to for either profession. Dressed in a pair of corduroy trousers and button up shirt with his sleeves rolled up. Some type of gold jewelry is worn on the front of the shirt and wearing a large gold signet ring as well. Whatever his profession was he seems to have been doing quite well. Housed in a half leatherette case.
