A goldminer

Wonderful cdv tintype, (2 3/8” x 3 ½”), of a gold miner.  He is quite the rugged looking character and appears to have been out in the gold fields for a long time.  The image is in very good condition with nice tones and contrast.  There are some small dark lines on the left side in the background and one small ding to the plate on the upper left corner.
