Man in Masonic Regalia

Man wearing Masonic regalia

The glass was pretty cloudy when I found this.I pulled the tintype from its case and lighly brushed it,washed the glass and removed loose particles from the case .There was bleeding of the copper frame onto the tintype so when I replaced it in its case I placed the glass on top of the tintype.Not sure what is worse over time glass or copper?? Late 1850s-early 1860s
