Collecting Tintype Photos:
Each tintype is one of a kind and completely unique. Oddities and well-defined images are highly collectible.
Tintypes are made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion.
Subjects in the photo were required to stand completely still for several seconds to have a clear image.
