  • @veela_valoom daguerreotype looks like a mirror, tintype usually dark. Other possibility is ambrotype. Happy to take a look … in reply to veela_valoom #
  • @veela_valoom yeap, that looks 99% like a tintype to me. Another test is to put a magnet on the back and see if it sticks. in reply to veela_valoom #
