    I found this in a storage bid with some other old items and was wondering how old it is, worth anything or any ideal where I can take it to get it appraised. It looks like Abraham Lincoln but or course it would not be in my hands if it was. lol Still pretty cool.

      Your image looks like an 1850s tintype of a guy with a beard-- I agree it is not Lincoln or even much of a look alike. You didn't post the size of the image-- which can make a difference in values.

      It is only about a 2x3 app size picture, and it folds up.

      Most of your value is in the case. I'd say about $25.
