Sixth Plate Tintype of a Young Union Soldier

Sixth plate tintype portrait of a young Union infantryman, seated with arms folded, wearing a frock coat and what appears to be a private purchase forage cap complete with regimental, company, and branch insignia, the latter of which seems to be of the false embroidered variety, and what appears to be a bucktail. Soldier's cheeks are lightly tinted pink. Housed in full Union case, of the scarce Farmer's Dream design (See Krainik-138).
