Sixth-plate, 1840s daguerreotype of a man with a chin beard in oversized case. Heavy, square mat, green silk pad. The hinged, double hook clasp leather case is 4.25" x 3.75" when closed. It's in very good, complete condition with light wear spots to the leather. The dag is unsealed with bits of original seal in the case. It's been taped to the mat on the back with what looks like a couple of pieces of newer clear tape, but looks like it will be very easy to remove and reseal... should at least keep it in place during shipping. Dag has a tarnish ring and several areas of abrasions and scratches from sliding around underneath the mat at some point. I think my scan captures the worst of these (near the top center), but if you have any questions at all just let me know.
