Hello collectors!
I need help identifying this Tin Type. It is the small size, and is of a 1877 woman, who has short (men's style) hair cut, a scarf and leathers on her wrists.
She is a horsewoman or shooter perhaps?
I am in the very SW corner of Nebraska, so this could be from Missouri, Kansas, Iowa??
Thank you.

    Thank you! I was kind of thinking the same. If it's her it would put her at about 25 in my tintype. Kinda fits! Right area and everything! I just listed it for sale. :)

    It might be worth further verification. Check out this expired sale on ebay.

    Wow, I looked at a photo of her in the later years and eyes, expression looks really close. This is where I found it.

    Thank you, everyone! I so agree.!! I really think it looks like her.
    There were some other interesting characters in the photo album this came in as well.
    I cannot find a picture of her of same age but I do truly think it's her.
    Right area too. :)
