6th plate daguerreotype of an older man wearing eyeglasses. He looks familiar but I can't place him. I don't think you can see this in my scan, but the brass mat is stamped:
"Beckers & Piard / 264 Broadway" (NY).
This studio was known for its excellent portraits and fine tinting. This man's face is lightly tinted pink.. his coat might have been tinted at one time also.. I can't tell positively.
The dag is in excellent condition with its original seals intact. It's in a full case with separated covers.
