Tintype photography was widely used throughout the 1860’s and 70’s. Tintypes were used widely by both Union and Confederate forces alike in many different shapes and sizes. Although this example was thought to be an “Oreo”, it does not retain any recognized sizes or signs of ever having a frame around it. The image itself features an officer as seen by his shoulder boards affixed his buttoned up frock coat. It appears he is wearing some form of hat, but I am unable to tell what kind it could be. The image itself shows reasonable age and wear. The reverse shows some natural oxidation which is common due to the process and materials used to make these early photographs.
