CDV is of Kinsman posed with his arms folded across his chest. He wears a dark double-breasted frock coat with lieutenant colonel’s shoulder straps.

Image is very nice. Contrast and clarity are excellent as is the paper and mount.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for KIMBERLY BROS… FORTRESS MONROE. There is also a modern pencil ID and some collector information. ID is confirmed by other identified on-line images.
