Original mid-1850s sixth plate daguerreotype in full leather case. Unsealed, but undamaged.
There is no tarnish ring but there are a few small tarnish spots randomly scattered throughout the image. She’s wearing a painted gold brooch and possibly something On her cuff. The underside of the glass looks a bit foggy or smudged in spots, but there are no swipes on the images, just smudges on the inside or outside of the cover glass. The case is intact but the spine is almost split through.
