Approximately ½ plate tintype – 6 ¼ x 4- inches. They are wearing typical miner’s outfits and Panama hats such as prospective miners purchased on their voyage to California. But these guys look young and fresh, not like they had just made a lengthy and arduous sea journey. And this tintype is later than the gold rush era. Possibly these young men (brothers?) are dressed in these mining outfits that may have belonged to their fathers.
This has soft bends.
