A person on another discussion board has asked if the tintype he has is Civil War and if it shows a Confederate soldier. I know very little about uniforms, so if you wouldn't mind venturing out to one of the Ebay discussion boards, click on link below.
The images have blue boarders around thumbnail images, meaning when you click on the small image, a bigger one will pop up so you can see more detail.
If you are an Ebay member you can post a reply on that board, if not, please post here and I can relay it.
Also, do you know what make and model of revolver he's holding? I don't and would just have to thumb through my "Flayderman's" to find it.
