Tintype comes housed in a CDV sized paper frame. The image depicts an unidentified Marine posed by a wicker chair. The subject wears a dark kepi with a barely visible infantry hunting horn with Marine “M” at center on the front of the cap. He also wears a dark collared cape. The cape is held closed by three loops that fasten over three corresponding cloth covered buttons. The cape is open enough to see some of the military buttons on the coat underneath.

Image is clear and clean with great contrast. Reverse is blank except for an orange 2 cent tax stamp.

This image appears as an illustration on page 262 of “THE CIVIL WAR UNIFORMS OF THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS: THE REGULATIONS OF 1859” by Cureton and Sullivan.  [ad]
