[AFRICAN AMERICANA] -- [PHOTOGRAPHY]. Sixth plate tintype of African American man wearing military-style cap. N.p., [ca 1860s-1870s].

Sixth plate tintype of African American gentleman wearing a civilian coat and vest, and visor that appears to be consistent with military caps dating from the Civil War. However, we cannot confirm that this subject served in the military. (Image a touch dark, few minor blemishes/nicks to plate's surface.) Housed in pressed paper case (fully separated at hinge, some loss to spine).
