      Post some of the daguerreotypes and ambrotypes-- I'd like to see some of them.

      Content drives desirability-- hard to provide much info without better photos.

      ill take more pictures tomorrow but that 1 all the way to the right is a daguerreotype in that picture frame

      That is not a daguerreotype-- a dag is a silver coated metal plate.

      Your image is on paper-- possibly an albumen print.

      Here is an example:

      Most you see will be in the small cases-- the slightest touch will scratch the surface. An ambrotype is similar and is usually cased. The image is actually on a thin sheet of glass.
