[Uniforms] circa 1850 Daguerreotype

I'm looking for someone who would be willing to look at an image from a circa 1850 daguerreotype and tell me what they can about the uniform. Is it militray, ship's captain, etc. Who knows, maybe the sitter is identifiable.

The image was bought in Paris in 1984, but may be American.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.
