This is a nice cased tintype of an identified woman. The tintype dates from about 1855- 1865 and shows a very aged woman.
At the bottom between the mat and cover glass, someone has added a slip of paper with "Aged near 95".
I haven't researched the woman yet, but it is doubtful that she lived much past the time that her photograph was taken.
