He later became a police officer working with the famous Sheriff Mart J. Duggan as of 1882 and probably earlier. It measures approximately 3 1/2 x 2 inches in its original larger enclosure measuring approximately 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Tintype is as found. Fine detail and very good condition as pictured. An iconic photo. Thanks for looking.
