WHAT’S IT WORTH?
1864 ABRAHAM LINCOLN FERROTYPE
Photographic images come in many forms: daguerreotype, ambrotype and tintype or ferrotype. It takes an expert to know the difference.
Daguerreotype was introduced in 1839. Made of polished silver, these photos are very reflective and heavy and require a protective glass covering, as they are easily damaged. This method was in use only from the early 1840s to late 1850s.
