    Weird images have a strong collector interest and corresponding high values.

    As an image dealer and collector, I am always looking for that next odd ball image. This one was a surprise-- I have numerous animal images, but this is the first opossum that I have been able to find.

    He looks a little small, but there is no doubt of what he is based on that nose!

    The image is a late 19th century loose tintype by an unknown photographer.

    Reproduction of these images in any form is prohibited.
