    The metal ones are tin types & the images are easily damaged, get them out of the shed. Do you know any of the people in them? Value depends on subject matter, historical people or places etc.. You are lucky to have so many, keep posting.

    Your posted images have minimal value. An album of similar images will usually sell in the $50- $75 range depending on size and condition.

    As walksoftly says subject matter can make a big difference in values. Some to look for are soldiers, animals, occupationals, street scenes and famous people. Any of these type of images COULD be worth as much as the album or more on their own.
