This is a CDV sized tintype of a Civil War soldier.
The gold tinting has made his cap insignia a little hard to decipher-- either "crossed cannons" meaning he is artillery or "crossed sabers", meaning he is cavalry.
He wears a standard Union enlistedman's frock coat with shoulder scales.
He has a large Colt revolver stuck in his belt.
The backdrop on this image is very involved-- large US Flag, cannon, camp scene, and a horse pulled wagon.

Thanks for looking,
