This cabinet card depicts an 1880s policeman from Mansfield, Ohio.

He is shown in this image with his badge visible "1" and drawing his club.

Photographed by Campbell of Mansfield.

I will post a companion image to this shortly.

    Thanks bellin. The uniform and hat is very typical of late 19th/ early 20th century American police.

    Many folks associate the hat with the UK and are suprised to see it in US images.
