Quarter-plate daguerreotype of three children, the two girls holding hands. Original seals still in place. The underside of the glass is pretty dirty, but besides tarnish/tarnish ring, I do not see any obvious issues. There are one or two little flecks of green corrosion but these appear like they flaked off of the mat and are stuck to the underside of the glass, and not on the plate. The outer layer of leather on the spine is split, but the case is still intact; one of the hook clasps is missing.
