I think that you'll probably just have to make them yourself. In the US,
there are a couple of companies that you can buy silver-plated copper plates
and high quality copper plates for Daguerreotypes (see for suppliers) so those companies
might be a starting point and could point you in the direction for tin. You
still have to sensitize the plates yourself, though. Plus, how could any
manufacturer sell wet plates? The whole point of wet-plate is that the
emulsion is only light sensitive while it is wet.
