Brightly lit kid, shadowy person in the
background and a strange toned band around the
edge.  Hummm......what's going on with this
tintype?
Well...this one is good.  The photographer has
placed the child in the mothers lap to hold the child
still.  He then skillfully lit only the child leaving
mom in the shadows.  The strange band around the
edge is from the now missing original paper mat.  
This was matted in a CDV type format and mom
would not have been seen or at least not much of
her would have been seen.
