I bought these two tins off Feepay for next to nothing, mainly for this chap with the beard, he really does have some character.
Its about the size of a passport photograph so quite small but not as small as the gem plates.
In comparison, the other tintype is of this serene looking young lady.
What I have noticed is that the price of these “collectables” is on the increase so its becoming even more difficult to find a bargain. Although saying that I think I might have just got hold of two Opalotypes or “milk glass positives”. I’ll find out when they arrive after the Bank Holiday weekend.
