Original 6th plate daguerreotype in half of its original push-button case. Pretty girl wearing gold necklace, locket and ring. Mat is stamped "J. Gurney 549 Broadway" in the lower-right corner. Written on the inside of the case is "Nov 1854". Very good condition. Tarnish ring and some very light haze / hazy tarnish in the background, but no swipes, dings or corrosion noted. *Was just looking at my scan and noticed the little marks in the lower-right, along the mat edge.. I checked it out and the bulk of it is a little piece of fuzz, but there are also a couple of very small abrasions in there.. they are inside the tarnish ring and hard to see unless you're looking under magnification. Has been resealed with archival tape; the original broken up seals are inside. FREE boxed & insured Priority Mail.
