Civil War Daguerreotype - Confederate Officer For Sale

Civil War Daguerreotype - Confederate Officer

When my grandmother , whose family has been in Western Tennessee a long time, died we found this daguerreotype.  The photo is in a union box, sometimes called a sweetheart box.  The box is a lightweight wood with what appears to be a decorated sawdust coating.  The hinge is broken, although the metal hook for closing still works.  The felt on the facing lid is missing.   The photo itself is protected by the glass of the case, and surrounded by gilt decoration.  The photo is somewhat dark, as is typical.  The figure is clearly a civil war soldier in a gray confederate uniform.  Visible on the uniform are twelve buttons in two rows of six.  I believe that the seventh button at the bottom is obscured by the officer's lap and arm and that this man is a junior confederate officer, although the insignia on the sleeve cannot be made out clearly.  In the daguerreotype the buttons are golden in color and so must have been hand painted.
