    Six Early Daguerreotypes and Tintypes. Including: 1) a half-plate dag of mother and daughter, 2) a half-plate dag of three children who apparently don't enjoy being photographed, 3) an unmounted half-plate dag of a seated gentleman, 4) an unmounted quarter-plate dag of a young girl, 5) a somewhat dark sixth-plate tintype of a child in his "nightie," and 6) a sixteenth-plate tintype of an infant cut down from a larger image. We also include two copper mats suitable for sixth or quarter plate images. The condition varies, but is generally good or better.
