1/4 daguerreotype of siblings, and older boy and a freckle-faced little girl with her arm around his shoulders. She's wearing a necklace and a pearl bracelet. "My bother James and Sister Emma" is written in period pencil on inside of the case. Dag is unsealed but in very good condition, with a tarnish ring, and handful of tiny mat abrasions up close to the mat, within the ring. No corrosion, swipes, scratches or dings within the main viewing area. The glass has some spots, which are visible in my scan (on the boy's coat, between their heads, etc). That's on the glass.... the dag is sharp and clear. Case is complete and intact with no repairs.
