Good overall condition for such a rare subject. There tintype shows some mild scratching, with some loss to the emulsion along the edges. There are some moderate bends on the bottom half of the plate. There is a spot of wear on the left side of the image that is visible at angled light, but it does not really impede the image. (see photos)
