I think I can make out the head and top of one folded wing of a Confederate Army Staff Officer's button that is just below the mat. All of the buttons have been guiled except those
below the mat. I'm not 100% sure, but that's what I think I see. Regarding the image in general. This Officer wears a blue tinted coat with three rows of buttons. There are
should devices that I assume are for brass epaulettes, but I'm not totally sure. He also wears a porkpie style had to set off his entire ensemble. The streaks and swirls are
from flaws or stains within the emulsion and they are not scratches. The 1/9 tintype comes in a full case that has it's original binding and has no identification. #9549=$285.00
