Tintypes were unique photos, and were probably chosen by soldiers because they were more affordable and could be made under campaign conditions. The hand-coloring of the photograph was a matter of choice for the client, and of course involved additional cost. They were framed usually in a walnut shadow frame or gilt gesso, and this again was an additional cost to the client. In the intervening years, many photos have become separated from the frames, which can often seen in antique shops bearing a mirror or a popular litho-print.
