Half-plate daguerreotype of a man, most likely Rodney Park Lu Gar (1810-1877), a successful shipwright who lived in Brooklyn, New York. He is NOT identified anywhere on this dag, but this was purchased along with another half plate daguerreotype of fully identified girls who I believe were his daughters. 

On the back of this dag is written,

June 18th, 1855

Northampton, Mass.

Dag has its original seals in place and is in a full case with separated covers. Condition appears VG, with scattered tarnish spots, and the underside of the glass is a bit dirty or hazy, but the dag plate appears to be undamaged.
