Original 1/6 daguerreotype photo of a confident man. Previous owner purchased in South Carolina but photographer and location is unknown. The dag is no longer sealed and comes UNCASED. It has a tarnish ring, and a light layer of haze / hazy tarnish, but I don't see any scratch or abrasion issues or any condition issues of note... my pics should show all age related issues well, but if you have questions please ask before committing to buy. ** The white line by his hair is fuzz stuck to the underside of the glass.
