Original 1/6 daguerreotype photo of a painted portrait of a man, wearing a uniform and writing with a quill pen. He looks like a Revolutionary War era American general or other military man to me... He is wearing a uniform with buttons running down the collar, and 4 more along his sleeve. The buttons are much easier to differentiate in person, because my scanner exaggerated a bunch of dust and other specks. There is a star insignia on his shoulder... and is that a flag in the upper-right? It also appears he is wearing epaulettes, and possibly even a bow in his hair. In a half-case that is 3.75" x 3.25". Condition Very good. No scratches, dings or swipes. The original seals are no longer intact, but most, or all of them remain in the case. Shipping Boxed Priority Mail insured, worldwide. NOTE: If you are a repeat international customer of mine, I will definitely consider sending this item a less expensive method (First Class). Please convo me first!
