CDV is a chest-up view of a Union soldier in uniform named John W. Kingman.  He is wearing a dark colored double-breasted jacket with shoulder boards.

Reverse of image is marked with the photographer’s imprint, “BLACK & CASE, BOSTON & NEWPORT, RI”.  Imprint is partially obscured by a cut-out from an album page which has been glued onto the back of the image. This has a handwritten inscription which reads, “COL JOHN W. KINGMAN, MARRIED DANIEL M. CHRISTIE’S DAUG, BECAME US JUDGE IN WYOMING, COL OF 15TH N.H., STUDIED LAW“.  Also on the reverse is a handwritten inscription that reads, “ENL. 10-2-62 AS PVT 15TH NHV, APPT COL 10-7-62, MUST 10-28-62, M.O. 8-13-63, PORT HUDSON, LA CANYON”.

Image is clear with good contrast. Some light surface dirt is present.
