I have a large number of ambrotypes, tintypes and a few opalotypes now. This is the first wet plate negative to be added to my collection. I have no idea of the age of the plate. I’m assuming its a wet plate image, I suppose it could be an early home poured dry plate? If you have any ideas please let me know. For the price I couldn’t really say no as you don’t see them that often in comparison to ambrotyopes/tintypes.
The collodion has lifted in places and here you can see it peeling back from the corner.
