Item details

Vintage from the 19th century

After I spent an hour trying to bring the contrast up just enough so as to read the number on the shield of his hat, it occurred to me that while I still don't know exactly what the number is, I think it might be 23 and this is probably not a true occupational photo at all, but rather a photo of a man in a fraternal organization's regalia. It's more consistent with a Masonic uniform than it is a police officer or military man, but I don't mind being corrected if anyone has extra info. Cabinet card, image is light as shown in actual scan (second image), cool painted backdrop, unknown photographer, unknown secret rituals, unknown illuminati.

UPDATE: A knowledgeable person contacted me and said he thought this man's regalia was consistent with the P.O.S. of A.
