    TinType on Leather?

    First, I'd like to say HI! I've watched this site for a while and this is my first post.

    I have collected old photography since I was a kid, and today at a local flea market I found this oddity mixed in with a box of fifty or so tin types. It's a collodian process, but on leather instead of metal.

    Is there anything you can tell me about this process? What it's called?

    What kind of photo is this?

    Congrats on finding a rather scarce image. I have collected and dealt in antique images since the late 1980's. This is the first image on leather that I have seen. I knew that they are out there, but have never seen them. I don't know if there is an actual name for the type of image, but it really is a great find!

    Are you sure that it really is leather, and not just textured and colored paper?

    If a person had the right equipment, and the imprinting/crash die to make it, this would be an easy project.

    Hey Clovis.

    Yes I am certain it is on leather. It is not on any form of paper that has been glued down on the leather either, which is what I assumed it to be at first. It has the same color/texture and grainless nature of a tin type, only it is somehow affixed to leather. I'll post a photo of the side view so you can see!

    Golly Surf!

    This is amazing! Thanks for solving the mystery. I have never even heard of these, and I've been buying photos since I was nine (quite a few years ago). Looks like I have something new to look for.

    Thanks so much for the information and being so knowledgable! It's neat to know I rescued something rare before it got too knocked about in a box lot!
