Question: How do you tell the difference between a tintype and a daguerreotype?

Tintypes are attracted to a magnet, while Ambrotypes and Daguerreotypes are not. The Daguerreotype image has a magical, mirror-like quality. The image can only be seen at certain angles. A piece of paper with writing will be reflected in the image, just as with a mirror.

How much does a tintype cost?

The most common size was the sixth plate. The price of ambrotypes and tintypes ranged from 25 cents to $2.50 in the United States.
