I call this Yank, “The Recruit” as he looks like a newbie to me. He bears no identification and wears the standard issue 4 button Yankee frock. He is adorned only by two pinkie rings and the flashy watch chain attached to his trousers. I purchased this Sixth Plate Tintype in 2019.
While touching up the imperfections on the plate, I noticed that some letters were etched into the plate below his right knee but unfortunately I cannot make them out.
