A few tintypes and dags from my collection of cased vintage photos. In the photo of the gentleman in fine attire, can anyone give a best guess as to the time period of the photo based on his getup? I'm going to hazard a guess at between 1850-1865, but I could be off. The gentleman's photo is a 1/6 plate tintype. The case is complete and intact. The Union soldier is a tintype, 1/8th plate. I do know a fair bit about the Union soldier - he is an ancestor of mine (name currently unknown), the photo was taken in either 1861 or 1862, as he is a member of the 76th Pennsylvania Zouaves, and the uniform style is from the first two years of combat. The case of the Union soldier is styled to appear to be a tiny book, but the top cover is missing. The woman is a 1/6 plate Daguerrotype, taken in Argentina, in approximately 1850. The case is very similar in style to that of the gentleman's, and is also intact and complete.
