Image shows Dyer standing by a podium on which his right hand and his slouch hat rest. He wears a dark double-breasted frock coat with black felt collar and shoulder straps.

Clarity and contrast are excellent. Paper and mount are good with only light dirt from age and storage.

Reverse has a strong period ink ID in three lines that reads “ISAAC DYER COL COMD. 15TH MAINE VET VOLS.” Reverse also has a green 3 cent tax stamp dating from 1864 -1866.
