Item No. 4818302

This is a nice CDV-size tintype (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") of a handsome young Massachusetts militiaman. He stands at attention in the photographer's studio with his hand resting on the pillar to his side. He wears a light colored, likely gray uniform jacket, epaulettes, and a leather shako with a "3" (or possibly an "8") displayed prominently on the brass badge. He also wears a leather belt with a percussion cap pouch and a standard "US" oval belt plate. This is a post-Civil War image, circa 1870. The image is in very good condition. There are a couple of minor bends in the plate that aren't particularly noticeable. This is a loose image without a case.
