It’s her eyes! The above is a scan of a tintype, which I’m tentatively dating in the early 1860s, due to her style of dress.

I couldn’t get this carte de visite out of the album, so I snapped a photo instead. I wanted to research the long coat he is wearing — that and his other clothing/accessories can help date the photo. I think the coat is called a morning coat, which according to this site became popular in the early 1880s.
