  • Newbee needs expert on Melainotype image

    Hello forum, I have been a collector of 1850's 60's photography. I know quite a bit about tintypes and glass images but not about restoring. Lately I have been digging up some that needs to be restored or maybe they are too far gone. My first question is I would like to show someone on the forum that has quite a bit of knowledge of the history of the dag and tintype process. I have an image that I might want to publish but needs some expert advice on dating the image of a famous person. Thanks Bill

      What Have We Here?
      by Ed_L
      Here's your clues: The image is on what appears to be a thin copper plate. Between it and the cover glass is a brass mat. If you turn the image a certain way, the image almost disappears. Turn it a little more, and it appears as a negative image. What type of image is it, and when was the image made?...

      I would like to know approximately the decade in which this image was captured.

      I suspect that it is not the person whom I have identified it as, but rather his son. The fly in the ointment is the writing on the reverse of the...
