This officer, I was told from New York State, is captured in the 1/6 plate full standing image on tin, wearing his dress uniform frock, forage cap, sword belt rig with holster and his foot sword. The epaulets, buttons, and any gilt parts were enhanced by the photographer.

Presumably the holster contains a revolver, and looks like it may be a Colt Police model by the shape,

The officer’s face is very clear, and has a faint amount of tinting to the cheeks.

No information at to who the subject may be,

The leather case is intact at the hinge, with some roughness near the catch on top edge.

Overall in very good condition.
