Very nice tintype image with some chips on it. The name appears to be written in pencil, but has left some indent in the brass. I tried to get a picture but to read you need to tilt image side to side and have the light/shadows help to identify letters, only 2 or 3 characters can be made out at once.

With Research I determined this to be Andrew Gilford Bow born 1845 in Brunswick, Maine. Andrew is listed as Mulatto on most records and Black on a few. He was a carpenter by trade and his father was a farmer. I've included a picture of him as an older man, found on Ancestry for comparison.
