Billygoat Beard

This weeks vintage tintype is of a great looking bearded chap. Its in a half union case.

I’ve taken it apart so you can see how its put together, I didn’t remove the plate from its final mount as it was stuck, not sure if it was put together whilst the varnish was still tacky, and I didn’t want to damage it by pulling too hard.



Sixth plate (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches)
