    Sorry-- not a dag, ambro or tin in the group.

    All are paper images. The first dates from about 1900- 1910. The second is probably 1890s.

    It sure looks like a paper image.

    An ambrotype would have the photograph actually on the glass. It is a photo negative with an applied black backing that makes the image appear as a positive.
