Here's a very young Marine in regulation uniform with piped jacket, white buff leather, and headgear (M insignia is gilded over). These images are much more rare than Confederate images from the war. This was a 1/6th tintype.
I ended up selling the image to pay for another grouping that I need to do some further research before publishing it.
