The Veteran

I purchased this sixth plate tintype of a grizzled vet in 2018. He was unidentified but I found him interesting. The subject sits before a canvas backdrop with a camp scene on it. His frock coat with eagle buttons is in excellent condition—probably new. The brim of his kepi is tilted upwards and there is unit insignia on top of his cap that is illegible. He wears a pinkie ring on one hand.
