np, nd (c. 1880s). Item #97-8322
4.5 x 2.5, very light wear with light spotting on reverse, edges of photo uneven. Else very good/fine. Acquired in a collection of African American photos but this soldier does have Caucasian features. The young man is wearing a lightweight wool (?) jacket with corporal stripes, slightly darker trousers, a prairie belt (has shotgun shells in it), boots and a commercial cap. Buffalo soldier? A very sharp image.
