    This is an old Tintype Photograph. I told scottvez I would dig up some old photos. There's more on the way. If anyone has anything to say about this photo I would love to hear it. Thanks

      Love it!

      Is it larger size?

      Looks to be a copy image of an earlier tintype that was mounted in a paper CDV size holder.

      This photo is 6.5 x 8.5 inches. Why do think it is a copy?
      Thanks Gary

      It is a 19th century image. Probably dates from the 1870s- 90s.

      Left side as viewed shows the torn paper backer of the original CDV mount. Also visible is the edge of the image and the board it was against while being photographed.

      During the late 19th century most photographers advertised the ability to copy earlier photographs and paintings. It was an important part of the photographers business.

      Scott,
      I was wondering about the left side. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

      Glad to help.

      I find 19th century copy images to be particularly appealing. The more amateurish, the more desirable!

      Here is an example from my postings. The original was an 1850s daguerreotype that was copied in the 1860s. The photographer left the original matting on the image:

      Scott,
      There's a lot to know about photographs.

      I have been buying/ selling and studying antique photographs for over 25 years and still have a lot to learn!

      Scott,
      I can tell you've been doing this for awhile.
