    What a shame that they've all been painted over!!! :sad: All of the subtleties of tone have been lost and most now look very 2d.

    The majority now look as if a real beginners amateur has been let loose to do some portraits.

    I love an original and untouched tintype, but imo these have been massacred!

    Wonderful!, what would they have used to paint them with?
