Ninth plate tintype dressed in this state issue jacket. Unfortunately the buttons are gilded over obscuring any state identity. Seated pose with his hands resting in his lap. Sergeants stripes and cuff trim have been gilded by the photographer as well. Nice patriotic back drop featuring a number is Sibly tents. Most of the scene is however covered by the brass mat. This one comes housed in a very nice patriotic thermoplastic case and patriotic mat.
