Quarter-plate, 1850s daguerreotype of a bearded man wearing a checkered suit. No location or ID, but possibly taken in California (location of previous owner of this image).
Comes in half case with original seals in place and unbroken. The underside of the glass is foggy in spots (these are not swipes) and a bit dirty, but besides a mold spider and light tarnish, the plate looks very good - there are no abrasions, swipes or scratches. The white spot along the mat edge to the left is not an abrasion or damage.. looks like some kind of tarnish or something that was always there.
