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.

I ended up selling this one for $1600. Matt Flemming of The Civil War Image Shop listed it for $1800 but never did sell for that amount. Maybe it could have if I waited long enough, butni needed the capital to move onto a regiment I collect specifically.
