A full-plate tintype, possibly of a soldier from Maine.
I bought this full-plate tintype at Dallas gun show in the mid-1990s. Based on writing in the paper case that holds this photo, I believe this soldier is from Maine. The full-plate size is uncommon, so I parted with $75 to add this faded image to my collection of Civil War photography. ("Sucker!") This photo was obviously in a picture frame at some point. The buttons are tinted gold on the uniform of this bearded soldier. He merits further research, but this guy's name is probably lost to history.
