Original early-1860s sixth-plate tintype of a young Civil War zouave wearing tasseled cap, tinted red shirt/collar, painted gold buttons. I believe his pants are also tinted blue. In half of a case that has been hand painted. The bottom rail is loose but still connected. The tintype is slightly dark but very visible, esp in proper lighting.
I've uploaded an unedited cell pic, taken with flash that I hope simulates good lighting. Overall very good antique condition with some light mat abrasions and a couple of light bends that I can see on the back, but not on the front. The OUTSIDE of the glass has some residue, looks like hard dried glue, that does not affect the image in any way.
