6th plate daguerreotype behind mat and glass in full leather case.

The dag is foggy and/or tarnished, but if I look very carefully the negative view appears to show a little girl propped up in a chair. The underside of the glass is dirty and the old seals are no longer intact, but inside of the case. Besides the tarnish/haze, I don't
see any obvious damage to the dag. The case is complete with a single hook clasp. The OUTER layer of leather on the spine is split however the interior layer is not, so the case is still intact.
