Vintage baby

Today we have a tintype in a paper folder. There is no identification of the child in the image and this was purchased as part of a large lot of “old photos” off ebay. If you enlarge the photo, you can see what appears to be the arm of a parent reaching in from the right side and holding the child in place. It’s difficult to date a tintype because they were popular in various forms from 1860 through World War 2! However, it’s likely that this tintype is from 1865 to 1880.
