Sixth Plate Tintype of a Confederate Private

Sixth plate tintype of a soldier wearing a well-made seven-button grey frock coat with distinctive rows of dark, thick braiding on the collar, and high-relief brass buttons. Not enough details are shown for a likely identification, though the look is evocative of a Tennessee or North Carolina private. Housed in a pressed paper case, partially separated at the spine.
