The 1880s unknown Indian War U.S. cavalry officer

Digitally enhanced picture from cabinet card of private collection.

A gorgeous portrait of an American infantry/cavalry officer. He’s standing proud with his arms crossed, his sword on the side. He’s wearing white gloves and a high collar below his dress coat. He moved ever so slightly, and it seems he has a scar on his nose.  I cleaned it up and played with the contrast some, and quite like it this way.

His belt buckle.

The Indian War officer belt buckle.

The card is blank on both sides, what a pity. No name either.
