Sixth plate daguerreotype. U.S. Army or militia officer.

This is an image of a young uniformed military officer, complete with epaulets, sash, detailed belt buckle, and plumed hat resting on the column next to him. I am not knowledgeable about military uniforms, so this may be Mexican American War or more likely a militia group. There are no wipe marks and the image has old paper seals. It has tarnish to the perimeter near the mat. It is in a wooden wall-hanging frame that is likely original to the image.
