Antique Ambrotype and Tintype Photos in Thermoplastic Union Case 1/6th Plate


tintype shows large haloing around the woman’s head, light dust and light scratching. The ambrotype is in nice shape, clarity is good – light dust and minor wear overall. Ambrotype has old sealing tape still in place. Brass mats and preservers showing light tarnishing but display very well. The union case displays nicely. Mild scratching and small bites along the edges. There is a large cracked section around one hinge area, it’s still hanging on and I don’t see any sign of repair.
