Please help me with this picture, if you can, date? I have had it for years, I can't remember from where.

Is it worth anything?

Fair to good condition. Who? if anybody knows. Thank You.

    No-- it is not a daguerreotype.

    It looks like it is a tintype. May be an ambrotype (on glass). It dates from about 1855- 1865.

    Add the dimensions and I will give you a value ballpark.

    Bless You Scott,
    2 1/2" wide
    2 3/8" tall
    1/2" deep
    Dimensions are with it closed.
    Tin under glass
    It has a brass hook closure.
    Thank You for your expertise.

    It is Ninth plate (1/9) size.

    These have a value of about $15- $25 depending on the sale venue-- toward the lower end on ebay. Most of the value is in the case.
