This, I think, is a cased tintype. Originally I thought it was a daguerreotype, but they're older than tintypes, so I figure this must be a tintype (please tell me if I'm wrong). I do not know who this man is, he must be a relative. This was with the photo of Thomas Alvis that I posted (I'm thinking the same family). The case is in EXCELLENT condition, it doesn't seem to be wood (maybe it is though).
Is this man dressed in a uniform of any kind? What's the date of this image approx.?
Any information about this piece would be helpful & appreciated!!
