Rob Jackson This is an interesting photo. It appears to be a small tintype (photo on metal)that was taped to the back or inserted in a sleeve-pocket with a small oval window or mat acting as a frame. Often the thin cardboard the tintype is attached to has gold trim. These were popular in the 1860s is correct. Rob Jackson

Rob Jackson This is a great portrait. The man was very likely well-off and in business or some other profession. This is a cabinet card photo if it measures about in the 4x5 inch range..typical of the mid 1880s. Rob Jackson
