Two Nice Gentleman Cased Photographs-1 Tintype and 1 Ambrotype

I picked up some nice items from avery good estate auction in the Historic Northfield Mass the other night. This is estate fresh from that sale. The smaller is hard plastic while the larger is embossed leather and the binding is separated but will be a very easy fix with a bit of material and glue. I guess it does help to have brass hinges instead of fabric at the binding. The smalIer is the tintype and larger glass image ambrotype tried to picture them both well to show off the detail on the front and back covers and the interior condition of the foil frame and soft embossed front cover. The glass ambrotype measures 2 1/2" tall x 2" making them a 1/8 plate , I believe. They both show very well and photos are nice and sharp, they should look great on display or as addition to collection. I tried to price them nicely for a quick sale so I can go out and find more good stuff for the shop. Thanks for your time and interest.
