Half plate daguerreotype (case is 6" x 4.5" closed) of three children, with some tinting to the girl's ribbons and boys shirt. The boy on the right is wearing a cadet or school uniform with what looks like a handkerchief poking out of one of his pockets.
The pad is stamped with Mathew Brady's New York City location.. the lettering is slightly worn but discernible enough to see that it's Brady.
Dag is unsealed in full, complete case. The dag is in overall very good condition.. there are scattered tarnish specks over the surface, some have tiny green spots in them, which I can't see unless magnified. There is a little nick on the glass way above the girl's head; and there are a few small mat abrasions, but most, maybe all of these appear to be on the outside of the tarnish ring, and should normally be covered by the mat which has shifted very very slightly at some point.. it's stable now. The inside rail on the photo side is detached on the corners but still held in place.
