Mystery Solved

    Post some of the daguerreotypes and ambrotypes-- I'd like to see some of them.

    Content drives desirability-- hard to provide much info without better photos.

    ill take more pictures tomorrow but that 1 all the way to the right is a daguerreotype in that picture frame

    That is not a daguerreotype-- a dag is a silver coated metal plate.

    Your image is on paper-- possibly an albumen print.

    Most you see will be in the small cases-- the slightest touch will scratch the surface. An ambrotype is similar and is usually cased. The image is actually on a thin sheet of glass.
